MELLO, Claudia Berlim de et al. Abbreviated version of the WISC-III: correlation between estimated IQ and global IQ of brazilian children. Psic.: Teor. e Pesq. [online]. 2011, vol.27, n.2, pp.149-155. ISSN 0102-3772.

In order to calculate the correlation between the Estimated IQ and the Full Scale IQ of children submitted to the WISC III, four different data banks with a total of 207 children were integrated: (1) typically developing children, (2) children diagnosed as having Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder, (3) children identified by private clinics as having learning disabilities (4) children with neurological sequelae diagnosed by a public university outpatient treatment program. Results suggest that the Estimated IQ, which is based on the weighted sum of the subtest scores of Cubes and Vocabulary, may be used in the presence of time constraints, when intellectual performance is important for screening in research procedures, and as a reference within a broader neuropsychological evaluation.

Keywords : Children; WISC III; Estimated IQ; Full Scale IQ.
