My son’s paediatrician has suggested we get a WISC test for him. Please can you let me know if you have any recommendations for this.
The WISC test (Wescher Intelligence Scale for Children) is an intelligence test for children which generates an IQ score for the child. This is done by a clinical psychologist and can be used in evidence towards the Educational Health & Care Plan (EHCP) at school. Any consultant the child is seeing can make the referral, or the school might be able to organise an educational psychologist to do it. Our understanding is that it is best done in conjunction with other tests.
