About the David Wechsler 

The Wechsler range was originally developed by David Wechsler, PhD (1896 - 1981, pictured below), who pioneered the field of cognitive psychology, beginning with the publication of the Wechsler-Bellevue Intelligence Scale first published in 1939.

Since Dr. Wechsler's passing in 1981, a team of expert developers have continued to evolve the Wechsler measures by creating revisions of existing measures as well as developing new scales. The result has been the continuation of innovation and precision that is based on contemporary theory and current neurocognitive research. 

The Wechsler range continues to be amongst the most widely used assessments today: a testament to its popularity and longevity.
