Spring Workshop 2013 Logo
The Workshop which was held at The Albany Club (91 King St. E., Toronto, ON) on May 24, 2013 is available for purchase.

The focus of this presentation is on the Advanced Clinical Solutions (ACS).  We discuss the new Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scales (WAIS-IV), a new measure of adult memory assessment (WMS-IV and WMS Flexible) and the additional data provided by ACS.  We will also review demographically-adjusted  norms, the Test of Pre-morbid Functioning, new measures of social perception, effort and serial testing.
