On the 21st Nov, a select group of SRP psychologist came together to attend a workshop given by Dr Yeo Lay See (A/P in the Psychological Studies Academic Group, NIE/NTU) on the use of WISC-V, the test structure and how it differs from previous editions, new subtests, important considerations for administration, and scores and interpretation of the WISC-V. 

 

Dr Yeo, a Registered Psychologist in Singapore and a Nationally Certified School Psychologist in the US is the Programme Leader for the Master of Arts in Applied Psychology Programme at NIE/NTU. She teaches courses in psychological assessment and also provides clinical supervision of Educational Psychology trainees both at the NIE Wellness Centre and in selected local primary schools. Her research interests include cognitive-behavioural therapy, inclusive education, school readiness, and early interventions for children. 

With her extensive knowledge and experience, Dr Yeo shared her insights into the WISC-V and it was a thoroughly engaging Saturday morning for all participants. Participants attended as "newbies" and left as "pros" (more knowledge at least!).
