IQ & Education Assessment Clinic

Intellectual IQ Assessment

 

An intellectual assessment can help us determine a child’s level of intellectual ability or learning potential. It can provide us with an estimate of a child’s overall intellectual functioning, as well as his or her ability in specific cognitive areas such as working memory and processing speed.

Comprehensive Assessment

 

A comprehensive assessment combines two types of assessment to give more information about someone’s intelligence and academic achievement, and can compare results between different tests to provide a greater understanding of a child or adults abilities.

Academic/Education Assessment

 

An academic or education assessment can help us determine a child’s performance in areas of reading, spelling, written expression, and mathematics. We often compare a child’s intellectual assessment and academic assessment results to determine whether he or she is performing to his or her potential. For instance, if a child’s intellectual ability is found to be average, we would then expect his or her academic achievement to also be average.

Dyslexia Assessment

 

Dyslexia is a specific learning disability involving difficulties with reading and spelling that are not related to a child’s general level of intelligence. At Northshore Kidspace we offer testing to determine if a child has Dyslexia. We do this by using a standardized set of tests known as a Psychometric Assessment. For Dyslexia assessments, we use the WISC and WIAT tests. These measure a child’s intellectual ability and academic achievement, such as reading, written language and mathematics. We offer assessment for children aged 6 to 16.

Learning Disorder Assessment

These tests are also known as a Psychometric Assessment.
