IQ testing and more 

Identifying a young person’s strengths and challenges requires more than just an IQ test.

The holistic nature of our assessments are designed to identify giftedness and any possible learning differences, or issues, and to highlight strengths in your child or adolescent. Your unique characteristics will then be analysed and a formal written report will be completed. IQ testing and achievement testing are available as part of this comprehensive assessment. We have personnel in Sydney, Canberra and Perth who are able to conduct the assessment. We are able to conduct assessments for 4 – 25 year olds.
