Advanced Clinical Solutions for WAIS-IV and WMS-IV (ACS)

Title: Advanced Clinical Solutions for WAIS-IV and WMS-IV (ACS)
Year: 2009
Description: The Advanced Clinical Solutions for WAIS-IV and WMS-IV (ACS) is an individually administered array of tasks and procedures that enhance the clinical utility of the WAIS-IV and WMS-IV. It is designed to address specific needs of clinical assessment, including those of diagnostic and forensic evaluations. The ACS contains tasks, procedures, and scores that yield additional information on the processes underlying performance on the WAIS-IV and WMS-IV. A new subtest and data on embedded measures in WAIS-IV and WMS-IV are provided to measure effort. New subtests designed to measure aspects of social cognition are included. Many of the new ACS subtests and procedures were designed for specific types of evaluations, such as forensic evaluations, readministrations, and neuropsychological evaluations that require estimates of premorbid functioning. Executive functions are frequently impaired in clinical populations. Impairments in executive functioning can have a dramatic impact on an individual’s ability to function both cognitively and socially. The ACS includes the Trail Making and Verbal Fluency subsets (including Record Forms and Trail Making Response Booklets Conditions 2-4) from the Delis-Kaplan Executive Functioning System (D-KEFS; Kaplan, & Kramer, 2001). Including measures of executive functioning in an evaluation with the WAIS-IV and WMS-IV enables you to perform a comprehensive evaluation of neuropsychological status.

Advanced Clinical Solutions for WAIS–IV and WMS–IV(ACS) includes a revision of the WTAR instrument that has been renamed to the Test of Premorbid Functioning (TOPF). A component of and to be used along with the Advanced Clinical Solutions for WAIS–IV and WMS–IV(ACS), it has been co-normed with the new WAIS–IV and WMS–IV assessment tools.
