WISC-R Profile Analysis in Differentiating Learning Disabled from Emotionally Disabled Children.
The paper examines the usefulness of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised (WISC-R) subtest score pattern for distinguishing between groups of handicapped children, specifically learning disabled and emotionally disturbed students. The author asserts that no single clear cut pattern characteristic of either population is likely to emerge, and that intellectual patterning should not be the sole basis for placing children in classes for the brain damaged or the emotionally disturbed. Research concerning the WISC-R and learning disabled and emotionally disturbed children is reviewed separately. The importance of analyzing individual students' performances is emphasized. (CL)
