A Giftedness assessment involves administering a standardised IQ test to see whether a client’s cognitive abilities lie in the range high enough to be considered gifted. These can be administered to children or adults. Children who are at school and identified as gifted often need to be given extra work to keep them engaged, motivated and ‘stretched’ with their learning. These assessments can also be used for entrance to some schools, and for adults can be used for applications to societies such as MENSA. These assessments include three sessions with a psychologist and involve an initial interview (30-45 minutes) with a parent or the adult client, one two-hour session in-person, and a feedback session (30-45 minutes) to explain the results and provide a comprehensive written report.
