If you are a parent of a child who is doing extremely well in school and you feel that they would benefit from greater academic challenges in school, then a gifted assessment may be appropriate.
A gifted assessment consists of an IQ test and academic tests to provide information for parents seeking “gifted” programming for their child. These tests are required in order to have the school board consider such programming for your child.
(Note that Ontario schools require “an unusually advanced degree of general intellectual ability” before providing gifted programming. We recommend that parents also research their school board’s procedures for gifted programming).
At NEAC we strive to provide comprehensive assessments at affordable rates with minimal wait times. Our skilled Psychologists and Psychometrists are able to perform assessments covering a broad set of academic, emotional, and social issues to help you and the ones that you love.
