    What is Gifted Testing?

    Gifted testing is administered in order to assess and identify gifted children. Testing will describe a student’s performance in their studies in relation to others. Through a gifted evaluation, our clinical neuropsychologists will determine your child’s IQ and measure their cognitive functioning ability including verbal and nonverbal abilities, working memory, and processing speed. The process involves measuring various aspects of cognitive functioning, including verbal and nonverbal abilities, working memory, and processing speed. Additionally, academic skills such as reading, writing, and mathematics are assessed to gain a holistic understanding of a child’s strengths and weaknesses.


    Identifying whether a child is gifted is crucial for tailoring their educational experience. Gifted students often benefit from alternative academic plans to ensure they are sufficiently challenged and engaged. If you suspect your child may be gifted, undergoing gifted testing can help uncover their unique abilities. Moreover, the results of these assessments can be instrumental in determining eligibility for placement in gifted programs.
