Gifted Assessment


Do you feel your child is gifted?

Is your child unchallenged by their school program?

Is your child acting out because they say the work is too easy for them?


If this is the case, your child may be gifted and may not be in the proper program to maximize their capacity for learning. An assessment of giftedness will provide the information necessary to support proper programming for an intellectually gifted child. Unfortunately, there may be a long waiting period to have your child tested by their school. This time period can be extremely turbulent as your child may be easily distracted and restless with the material they are learning. These issues could demonstrate as behavioural problems that may be improperly labeled.

At MCCG we understand that time is of the essence when it comes to your child’s development. We provide gifted assessments using the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-IV) to provide a concrete understanding of where your child stands in relation to their peers. Using the results of this assessment, we can work with you and your child to assist their movement into a more supportive and adequately challenging academic environment.
