Any recommendations for gifted assessment?

Postby blueskies on Fri May 13, 2016 7:05 pm

Does anyone have experience with having their child assessed for giftedness, and have any suggestions on who to see?

Thanks!

There is a meeting tonight of the Victoria Gifted Kids Network if you're interested. Most parents there have been through the assessment process and can offer advice. 7:30 at the Starbucks at Fort and Foul Bay.

What grade level is your child, and have you had a conversation with the school about assessment? Many parents of gifted learners end up going with a private assessment because the school district typically won't test until just before middle school, and even then it's not as thorough. It's common for gifted learners to have a dual designation with a learning disability as well, so it can be useful to have a full psych-ed assessment done, rather than just gifted screening.
