Intelligence is one of the major cognitive abilities.In assessment of cognitive abilities, the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS) is widely used as it assesses both fluid and crysalized intelligence.In this workshop, we will use WAIS-IV as it is an individually administered clinical instrument designed to assess the cognitive ability of adolescents and adults aged 16 years 0 months to 84 years 11 months.This workshop aims at dissemination of knowledge about Recent advancement of Researches in WAIS besides its theory, description, administration, interpretation and applications in clinical and non-clinical set-up.
