In recognition of emerging demographic and clinical trends, the WAIS-IVUK was developed to provide you with the most advanced measure of cognitive ability in adolescents and adults and results you can trust when addressing the changing clinical landscape. The WAIS-IVUK is now available in traditional paper-and-pencil format or digitally via our new digital assessment platform Q-interactive.

- identify learning difficulties, intellectual giftedness, cognitive strengths and weaknesses
