A complete list of our assessment services can be found here.
I Q TESTING FOR CHILDREN (& ADULTS)
IQ Testing is designed to evaluate your child's (or an adult's) innate cognitive abilities – not necessarily what has already been learned, but his or her intellectual potential. This testing is designed to identify cognitive strengths and weaknesses, providing parents with peace of mind about their child's abilities. I.Q. Testing can be provided on its own or as a component of AG (Academically Gifted), LD (Learning Disability), ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), or ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder) evaluations.
ACHIEVEMENT TESTING FOR CHILDREN
Achievement testing assesses your child's performance in reading, writing, and math – this determines what he or she has already learned and knows. It measures the comprehension of acquired skills and content. Achievement testing can help determine your child's specific areas of academic strengths and weaknesses. And it can be a valuable resource, in both traditional school and homeschooling environments, by tracking your child's academic progress over the years.
Academically Gifted testing combines both IQ and Achievement assessments to determine if your child is eligible for AG services in his or her NC public school. The specific tests given (WISC, WPPSI, WAIS) are determined by age. If your child is Gifted, it's important to get him or her appropriate educational experiences at an early age. Gifted kids can quickly become bored with school if lessons are beneath their academic and intellectual levels. This can ironically lead to underachieving if the special needs aren't met. AG kids often need a different kind of instruction and classroom experience in order to thrive and reach their full potential.
Consider Academically Gifted (AG) Testing for the following:
• To help identify your child for a Gifted program
• To provide details about learning needs, including strengths and weaknesses
• To discover any learning disabilities requiring intervention
• To help advocate for appropriate educational accommodations
The best time to test for giftedness is when your child is 4-years-old or older. Testing before age four can sometimes result in unreliable scores because behavior is more unpredictable.
