*Subtests that are in bold type are identified as strong measures of the narrow ability.

*References to WECH indicates that the subtest is found in all versions of the Wechsler tests

*Developed in part from Dawn Flanagan, Gail Cheramie, & Pasadena ISD

*Tests listed are abbreviated, however they are the most recent version available at the time the chart was revised(12/09)
