Pricing & Ordering
The WTAR Kit is no longer available. Record forms will be available until June 2018. The revised version, Test of Premorbid Functioning (TOPF), is based on WAIS-IV and WMS-IV.
WTAR takes less than 10 minutes to administer and involves asking the client to read 50 words that have atypical grapheme to phoneme translations out loud.
The WTAR provides a decided advantage over other tests because it was developed and co-normed simultaneously with the widely-used WAIS-III and WMS-III.
