Recently we had the school counsellor do WISC-IV for him (I know, we should have done it privately!) and I am struggling to understand what the scores mean and how we can help him.
They gave me the scores in percentile rank:
Verbal Comprehension: 47
Perceptual Reasoning: 94
Working Memory: 75
Processing Speed: 94
His reading and comprehension is slightly above his age level but it is based solely on sight words - he cannot sound out words and has missed the basics of blended sounds etc.
They have recommended a hearing test (tested fine), speech pathology and 1:1 tutoring to fix the basics.
Can someone shed any light on these scores? Why would his verbal be so low? And is he really just average to below average as the school seems to say? His perceptual reasoning and processing speed are superior..
