The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, Fifth Edition: Canadian (WISC-V[superscript CDN]; Wechsler, 2014) is published by Pearson Canada Assessment. The WISC-V[superscript CDN] is a norm-referenced, individually administered intelligence battery that provides a comprehensive diagnostic profile of the cognitive strengths and weaknesses of children and adolescents ranging from 6 years 0 months to 16 years and 11 months of age. The structure of the WISC-V[superscript CDN] not only continues with the Wechsler tradition but also includes aspects of the Cattell--Horn--Carroll (CHC) theory of human cognitive abilities and advances in neurodevelopmental research in its construct representation (Wechsler, 2014). The WISC-V[superscript CDN] provides information regarding overall intellectual functioning, as well as specific cognitive abilities, such as verbal comprehension, visual-spatial, fluid reasoning, working memory, and processing speed.
