In order to qualify for the gifted program, your child must receive an individual IQ test and an achievement test, administered by a licensed psychologist. It’s important to note that the school district offers this service for free; however, at times the wait can be lengthy and the accommodations (time of day, number of sessions, etc.) may not provide your child with the opportunity to perform at their optimal level. Furthermore, testing for children who have not yet entered kindergarten must be completed privately if you want your child to be eligible for the gifted program when they begin their kindergarten year.
At PsychExperts & Associates, Inc.,we provide a complimentary phone consultation to discuss the specifics of your child’s assessment needs. We will then discuss your son or daughter’s typical schedule and will make every effort to complete the evaluation at a time when your child is likely to perform at their best.
Children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder show developmentally inappropriate levels of inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. These behaviors are not situational and occur in different contexts, such as in the home, at school, and in public places. Our psychologists provide a thorough ADHD evaluation that includes direct observation, standardized psychological tests, and clinical interviews with the parents, teachers, and child. A comprehensive report with specific recommendations is then provided to the parents and can be reviewed during a final feedback session.
Learning Disability Evaluation.
At PsychExperts & Associates, Inc., our psychologists offer evaluations to assess for learning disabilities when a child’s performance in school is below what would be expected, based on their age, IQ, level of effort, and education. We meet with the parents and child to discuss the child’s history, prior to completing a thorough psychological evaluation. After all factors are taken into account, a comprehensive report with specific recommendations is then provided to the parents and discussed during a final feedback session.
