WISC III Compilation.
Whitworth, John Ruth; Sutton, Dorothy Lee
This book is intended to provide specific instructional help for educators planning remediation of deficits identified by the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children III (WISC-III) and for educators writing individual educational plans. An introduction notes differences between the WISC-R and the WISC-III. The guide is arranged in four subtest groupings which evaluate: verbal comprehension (information, similarities, vocabulary, and comprehension); perceptual organization (picture completion, picture arrangement, block design, and object assembly); freedom from distractibility (arithmetic and digit span); and processing speed (coding and symbol search). Information relating to a supplementary subtest on mazes is also included. Short-term objectives written in behavioral terms are provided by grade level for each subtest grouping, and suggested instructional materials and activities correspond with each objective. Preliminary information includes a list of 20 bibliographic resources and addresses of over 100 publishers of the instructional materials listed. (DB)
