Ebrahim was administered the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children– Third Edition (WISC III). This test has five main scores: Full Scale score, Verbal Comprehension score, Perceptual Organisation score, Freedom from Distractibility score and Processing Speed score. Ebrahim’s raw scores on each subtest is related to the performance of other children within the same four month age band (the standardisation sample) to produce scaled scores.

Ebrahim’s Verbal scaled scores (41) gives a Verbal IQ of 89 and places him at the 23rd percentile, his score is below average as it means he scored higher than only 23 out of 100 children from the standardisation sample, in this case, his age group.

Middle

Since Ebrahim has suffered from difficulties with motor coordination he may be suffering from a mild case of cerebral palsy or his reaction to food colourings and hyperactivity may suggest ADHD.Much of a child's normal intellectual, physical, and social development occurs through play and exploration of the environment however cerebral palsy or ADHD may restrict a child's ability to engage in these activities, and therefore prevent the acquisition of motor skills, knowledge of the world, and social competence. He should be referred to his GP for further medical examination.
