IQ or cognitive assessments are designed to measure a variety of mental functions, such as reasoning, comprehension and judgment. The goal of IQ or cognitive assessment is to obtain an idea of a person’s intellectual potential, providing an outline of his or her cognitive strengths and weaknesses.
How Will My Child Benefit from an IQ Assessment?
All children require comprehensive evaluation and appropriate support in order to develop all of their capabilities. With a good understanding of the child’s IQ or cognitive profile, teachers and parents are then able to make informed decisions to invest in learning programmes, courses or make an informed decision on the most appropriate choice of schools, for example, after the PSLE, that best matches the child’s current level of development and expectations. This is the purpose of IQ or cognitive assessment rather than simply to obtain an IQ or numerical score.

- Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence (WPPSI) for 2 years – 6 years old OR
