  • Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised as a Neuropsychological Instrument WAIS-R NI has been devised for the assessment of brain injury.

In the past, some clinicians have attempted to use the pattern of scores on the WAIS-R and WAIS-III. For example, digit span may be used to get a sense of attentional difficulties. Although some regard this use as controversial as these versions of the WAIS were developed for the average, non-injured individual, but it was argued that since most of the measures on the WAIS are hetrogenous they actually lack very little validity with regard to the assessment of well localized brain functions [How to reference and link to summary or text].

However the WAIS-R NI adressed these criticisms Each subtest score is tallied and calculated with respect to non-normal or brain-damaged norms.
