Waisiii Profile Interpretation Steps

This chapter begins by touching on recent criticisms of our approach to profile interpretation and then continues with a discussion of a step-by-step approach to interpreting the WAIS-III profile. Here we will provide a description of the first seven of nine steps of interpretation. In these steps we will lead you through an examination of the most global score (Step 1), to examination of the IQs (Steps 2 to 4) and then the factor indexes (Steps 5 to 7). The final two steps, which deal with determining the strengths and weakness in the profile (Step 8) and how to generate specific hypotheses from the statistically significant subtest strengths and weaknesses (Step 9), are discussed in Chapter 12. To aid in interpreting the global dimensions of the WAIS-III, we refer readers to the empirical research presented in Chapter 9 on characteristic profile patterns associated with learning disabilities (e.g., the ACID grouping), Alzheimer's-type dementia (Fuld profile), psychiatric disorders, multiple sclerosis, mental retardation, and giftedness.
