Essentials of WNV Assessment provides practitioners with the practical, step–by–step advice needed to administer, score, and interpret the Wechsler Nonverbal Scale of Ability (WNV), a nonverbal assessment of general ability used to assess a wide variety of individuals.

Each concise chapter features numerous callout boxes highlighting key concepts, bulleted points, and extensive illustrative material, as well as test questions that help you gauge and reinforce your grasp of the information covered.

Essentials of WNV Assessment is the best source of information on the test, providing you with illuminating case reports, expert assessment of the test′s relative strengths and weaknesses, and valuable advice on its clinical applications. Authoritative and insightful coverage is presented for the assessment of examinees from diverse social, linguistic, and cultural backgrounds. You will learn the fundamentals of administration and interpretation, as well as advanced tips for application of the WNV.
