What is a Gifted Assessment?

A Gifted Assessment for Kids & Youth is a Comprehensive Psychological Evaluation Process designed to identify and measure a child’s exceptional Cognitive, Academic, Creative, or Artistic abilities. Gifted Assessments aim to determine if a child possesses advanced skills and talents beyond their age peers. 

 

These assessments are required for enrollment in special gifted programs within public or private school systems.

When can I test my Child for Giftedness?

The ideal timing for testing a child for giftedness can vary based on factors such as the child’s age, development, and the assessment practices in the region. Our Assessment Team makes the following recommendations to consider testing at various stages of their education: 

  • Elementary School: Gifted Assessments primarily happen during this time based on above-average academic performance, teacher recommendations, or parental requests.
 
  • Middle School and High School: Gifted Assessments can also be completed during these grades after following observations of exceptional academic achievement.

It’s important to note that:

Children develop differently, look for consistent signs of advanced abilities.

Every School Board requires different testing. We will work with you to meet those requirements.

Not every child that comes for Gifted Assessments will be diagnosed as Gifted.

FAQ

Biological Parents: both Parents are required to provide written consent regardless of marital/relationship status.  Exception includes if one parent is able to provide   legal documentation indicating sole decision-making authority regarding education and health decisions for the child.  

Primary Caregivers who are not Biological Parents: CAS, Foster, Adoptive Parents, Grandparents, or any other Family Member(s) who have proof of legal decision-making authority, will need to provide documentation and written consent.

The typical turnaround time for a Gifted Assessment can vary depending on several factors, including the complexity of the Assessment, availability to complete live testing, the number of Tests Administered, and the Completion of Parent and Teacher Questionnaires. In general, the Turnaround Time can be around 4 weeks.

Yes, Parents or Guardians are involved in the Gifted Assessment Process. One Parent or Guardian is required to be present during the Clinical Interview and Feedback Appointment. Your Child is not required to be present during these Appointments. 

 

Your child's direct testing session will be completed one-on-one with a member of our Assessment Team. During the Assessment Process, our goal is to understand your Child's Cognitive Abilities. Having Parents present during the testing sessions could inadvertently influence the child's responses or behaviour. 

This program is for kids and adolescents between the ages of 7 to 17 years old.

At the end of the Gifted Assessment process a Diagnosis may or may not be given. Each child is unique, and not every client will meet criteria for a Gifted Diagnosis.

We strive to offer the necessary support and interventions to help each child reach their full potential, regardless of a formal diagnosis.
