"This edited volume is intended as a resource for both graduate instructors and practitioners who use the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-IV (WISC-IV) as a tool for clinical assessment, diagnosis, and the development of psychoeducational interventions for a variety of disability categories. With a clear scientist-practitioner perspective and a focus on data interpretation and integration, it is a welcome addition to any professional library, particularly for practitioners who frequently use the WISC-IV as an assessment tool... Taken as a whole, the content and organization of this book makes the information easily accessible and very relevant for clinicians who use the WISC-IV as one of their assessment tools."
--Journal of Psychological Assessment (2010)

The book addresses special populations and contains helpful cross-cultural information. I don't think there is any other book to compare with it on this topic."
