If your child’s school has requested that your child participate in a gifted evaluation for placement into a gifted classroom or if you are wondering if your child is gifted, we conduct this type of testing using the following most updated versions of the most commonly used assessments:
Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence – Fourth Edition (WPPSI)
Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children – Version 5 (WISC-V)
Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS)
The testing takes about 2 hours and is done in a relaxed, but distraction free setting. Our expert examiners first help your child to feel comfortable and relaxed prior to testing. You are welcome to come back to the room with your child prior to the evaluation to help them feel as comfortable as possible and you are welcome to wait in the waiting room during the testing. We take several breaks and work at your child’s pace so they will never feel pressured or rushed. Most children really enjoy the process and ask to come back to do it again. Results are typically available immediately that same day.
