Testing and Assessments

How do you know if your child is gifted, or has unidentified learning differences?


Many families seek assessments (qualitative or quantitative) in order to understand how their child’s brain works. The full scale score can be handy, but the subtest scores – when tests are administered by qualified and experienced testers – can be eye-opening. Testing is not necessary for every child, but when behavioral issues indicate unknown obstacles (no, they’re not just being a pain!), an assessment can be a good way to determine if a child is so skilled at compensating that the surrounding adults are unaware of the effort being put forth in this regard.
