Do you wonder if your child is gifted?  

Do you need to have IQ testing done for your children for private school admission?  

Gifted evaluations/gifted testing

  • I offer Intelligence (IQ) Testing for children age 3-18
  • Intelligence (IQ) Testing helps determine whether your child qualifies for gifted education
  • Local schools normally accept IQ testing in lieu of their own testing

There are very clear distinctions between a bright child and a gifted learner. School districts typically follow very distinct protocols to identify children for gifted programs. Usually, the needs of the gifted child cannot be met in the regular classroom. Teachers often love the bright child, since they are wonderful, attentive students, whereas gifted students can sometimes be challenging in the classroom, and teachers may not easily connect with them.  Click HERE to read about the difference between a child that is gifted versus one that is bright.

Sometimes, a gifted child is not identified through the usual process at school. In this case, parents may choose to have their child evaluated for giftedness by a trained professional. This evaluation includes a brief interview with the parents and administering an IQ test to the child.

I truly enjoy conducting IQ testing for children and adults.  I administer the WISC-V to children and the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Fourth Edition (WAIS-IV) to adults. It takes between 60-120 minutes to administer the test.  Believe it or not, young child can sit still long enough to take an IQ test.  I watch to see when a child needs a break, and let them use the restroom, have a snack or run off some pent-up energy.

If you believe your child is gifted and you want them to be evaluated, or you are interested in IQ testing for private school or adult IQ testing, please contact me HERE. As a parent of a gifted child, knowing whether or not my child was gifted vs. bright helped answer many questions I had and gave me peace of mind that I was advocating correctly for my child.
