The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children – Fifth Edition (WISC-V) is used to assess for the presence of a specific learning disorder (such as dyslexia) as well as general learning difficulties and giftedness for primary and secondary students. This measure gives information about a student’s potential for academic success (that is, their speed of learning in the classroom) as well as their ability to learn concepts and how well they can apply them in a new situation.

The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Adults – Fourth Edition (WAIS-IV) is used to assess the presence of dyslexia as well as general learning difficulties and giftedness for adults.

 

These assessments are used along with the results of a literacy assessment to diagnose dyslexia.
