Cant update on my other post because of all Stars vibes...lol. I was administered the: Wechsler Test of Adult Reading, Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale, Conners Continuous Performance Test, California Verbal learning test, Brief Visuospatial Memory Test, portions of the Wechsler Memory Scale, Rey Complex Figure Tes and Recognition Trial, Boston Naming Test, Judgement of Line Orientation Test, Hooper Visiual Organization Test, Wisconsin Card Sorting Test and portions of the Delis-Kaplan Executive Function System. Behavioral Observations This patient was on time and appropriately dressed for appointments. She was pleasant and cooperative. Her affect was good and she was socially appropriate. She was somewhat anxious at times. Thre were no signs of hallucinations or delusions. Her thoughts were somewhat tangential, but generally organized and coherent. Her speech was fluent, without significant word finding or paraphasic errors. She was able to understand task instructions, but sometimes would need information repeated and clarified. She appeared to get overwhelmed when provided with multistep directions and would start asking questions about the task before the instructions were completed. Here processing speed was variable, and she appeared to be slower later in the sessions. In addition, she was very slow to make decisions regarding her answers and at times, needed encouragement to provide responses. It was very evident that she researches information about her difficulties and often uses techincal terms to describe her symptoms. Sometimes the terms indicate a more severe difficulty than is actually the case. She does seem to be hypervigilant, over-interpreting and overdiagnosing her symptoms at times. Test results. The WTAR came out as 105 and her Best guess of where I was before all this based on her crystal ball was a 113. But I know my IQ was somewhere around 138 when I was tested years ago. The WAIS gave me a Verbal IQ of 100 and a Performance IQ of 94 for a Full scale score of 98. Subtests Vocab 12 similarities 11 arithmatic 10 digit span 7 picture completion 11 digit symbol coding 9 block design 8 matrix reasoning 11 information 11 letter/number sequencing 9 picture arrangement 7 symbol search 9 Index scores Verbel Comprehension 107 Perceptual Organization 99 Working Memory 92 Processing Speed 93 In visual memory and learning this patient demonstrates in the moderately impaired range. ******************************************************** I really am not all that impressed with her. She seemed to think I should be jumping over the moon to find out I am "average" ! She actually stated that I did better than anyone else she has tested on one test...the Boston Naming test. Oh goody...I know what pictures are...lol. It was pictures of things like boats and guitars and things like that. I missed one. I got the compass and the protrator mixed up...lol. I do have problems finding my words. Anyone who knows me ...Knows that! Heather can tell you that...lol. It may not be as bad as a stroke victim but it is bad. No one lets me count money anymore because I consistently miscount it. Im not impressed with neuropsychs.
