ABSTRACT: This chapter will provide a brief introduction to the SSAIS-R. The introduction will summarize the purpose and development of the SSAIS-R including its historical links to other traditional psychometric measures of intelligence. Details will be provided regarding administration, scoring, demographic effects, as well as normative data and the standardized sample for this intelligence test. Psychometric properties such as reliability and validity will be commented upon. There will be some discussion on how the SSAIS-R can be used to provide a profile of weaknesses and strengths that will allow for appropriate intervention decisions to be made. Available studies that have used the SSAIS-R in a range of diagnostic and educational settings will be presented and critically evaluated.
