Subtest Scatter on WISC IV
Hi - I need help understanding my son's scores on the WISC IV.
He just turned 6. I had him tested because he was complaining school was too easy, not challenging enough. His Kindergarten teacher suggested we have him tested too. Sometimes his work is sloppy and he seems to "mail it in". He gets the concepts quickly but loses interest.
I was torn as to whether to test him because I wasn't sure he would try on the test since he checks out when a topic doesn't interest him.
I didn't like the tester (she seemed rushed and more interested in $ than accurate testing) and he told me after he was bored and the test wasn't interesting. He couldn't wait to be done and go to camp.
VCI - 134
PRI - 102
PSI - 97
WM - 102
on the PRI he obviously lost interest as he failed to complete the easiest designs on the picture completion and block design subtests.
The kid is reading at a 4th grade level so obviously verbal is his strength. But I have also read that when there is a large gap btwn VCI and PRI there could be a LD.
I am trying to understand if these results are a true picture of his potential or if he checked out because of lack of interest. In school he aced subjects he was into but struggled with the more mundane tasks like handwriting, etc.
I am also wondering if there is a LD at play.
Any insights/thoughts would be appreciated.
