It is developmental advancement that can be observed in early childhood. Although the term gifted is used to include many kinds of strengths, there are a few broad areas in which giftedness can show itself. They are intellectual ability, leadership ability, talent inart and music, and psychomotor ability. However, the gifted child may not develop or advance equally in all areas.
The damage we do to gifted children / teenagers and adults by ignoring their unique characteristics could be far greater than the damage we do by labeling it.
"Hide not your talents, they for use were made, what's a sundial in the shade?" - Benjamin Franklin
All children with advanced development require comprehensive diagnosis and early intervention in order to develop all of their capabilities. This is the primary purpose of gifted testing rather than simply to obtain a numerical score. Gifted and/or ability testing may qualify your intellectually gifted child for special programmes, educational provisions such as subject acceleration / grade skipping or personalised academic coaching for the twice-exceptional learner.
Accurate assessment of your child's developmental advancement that is based on professional clinical judgement by Registered Psychologists who are experienced in testing the gifted is the best way of determining the full strength of a gifted child's abilities objectively.
Gifted Assessment is only carried out by experienced Registered Psychologists according to International Standards, for children from 2 years of age, inclusive of an internationally-recognised psychological report that is widely accepted by MENSA, local and international schools as well as medical and healthcare professionals. The report includes personalised recommendations for your child to realise his/her potential for school and life success.
Assessment fees are inclusive of (i) professional consultation, (ii) assessment/test and (iii) psychological report. No additional or hidden consultation charges.
