It's that time of year again where many parents of elementary students and Kindergarteners are in search of the best school for the upcoming school year. Or your child is already in public school and you feel like they are too smart for the classroom, often bored or completing assignments at astronomically fast rates, understanding concepts and asking questions that are well beyond their years.
Many of you have been told by friends, teachers, and others that your child seems quite advanced or even "gifted". As you consider having your child evaluated for giftedness, the following are all of the ins and outs you need to know before he/she takes the test.
If you're interested in having your child tested privately for gifted, contact me at (786) 383-4942 to set up an appointment.
The evaluation takes approximately an hour to an hour and a half and scores are given immediately once testing is completed. Gifted evaluations are $400. The report is completed within the week.
I test children as young as four who will be entering Kindergarten the following school year through adolescents.
Scores do not need to be shared with the school and are kept confidential.
