Gifted Child Testing Near Me:

Is your child gifted?

Giftedness in children often manifests as exceptional aptitude in various domains, including but not limited to intelligence, creativity, leadership skills, and abstract thinking. If you've noticed that your child possesses an innate curiosity about their surroundings, consistently outperforms their peers academically, and demonstrates a level of emotional intelligence that surpasses their age group, it's highly likely that your child is exhibiting signs of gifted behavior.

Should your child's school administration recommend their participation in a gifted evaluation process as part of the criteria for placement in a gifted classroom, rest assured that the clinical psychologists at McCaskill Family Services are well-equipped to provide an accurate standardized assessment to meet this criteria.

Gifted Child Testing

The testing takes about two hours and is done in a relaxed, but distraction-free setting.

Our expert examiners first help your child 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, or 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 after the day of testing.

We conduct the most updated versions of the following commonly-used gifted assessments:
  • Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence – Fourth Edition (WPPSI-IV)
  • Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children – Version 5 (WISC-V)
  • Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale – Version 4 (WAIS IV)

Putting your child in a gifted classroom doesn’t necessarily mean more work, but more meaningful work.

If you or your child have any apprehensions regarding the unique demands of a gifted classroom, rest assured that there is no need for concern. The primary objective behind the process of having your child undergo gifted child testing is to ascertain that they are placed in an educational environment that aligns with their individual learning needs and capabilities. By exploring the possibility of your child's giftedness through testing, you open the door to a future filled with exciting academic challenges, abundant leadership prospects, and the capacity to unleash their creative prowess when dealing with abstract concepts.

We're here to assist you in identifying your child's exceptional potential and ensuring they have access to an educational setting that nurtures their unique talents and encourages their intellectual growth.
