The Center for Gifted and Talented / Intelligence Quotient Testing
Many schools have a long waiting list for testing services, so consider testing at The Center to help get your student in the right class or on the right track.
While many students are in their element at school, some struggle very hard to earn their grades while others just appear bored and uninterested in learning. Psychological testing can help parents know more about their children’s educational experience, including:
- How they learn and retain information best
- Whether they are gifted and talented
- Why they may be under-performing
- If they are in the right grade
GIFTED & TALENTED
Have you noticed that your child is particularly idealistic or a perfectionist? Does he or she find certain subjects or concepts very simple while his or her peers seem to struggle? If the answer is “yes,” your child may be eligible for Gifted and Talented (GT) classes. GT students are children or youth who perform at (or exhibit potential for performing at) an extraordinarily high level of achievement.
They usually excel in one or more of the following areas:
- Creative Thinking
- Specific Academic Ability
- Visual/Performing Arts
Because GT students usually become bored with their grade-level work, most schools place these bright youth in advanced programs so they can fulfill their academic potential. If your school district has a waiting list for advanced-placement testing, consider testing at The Center to get your child in the right class for their capabilities.
