Assessment of Intellectual Ability

An assessment of cognitive abilities (reasoning, logic, word understanding, problem solving) is undertaken when parents or teachers question:

  •  - ​​ Whether a child's ability is notably more advanced than their peers and want advice regarding specialist education planning ('Gifted' ability)

  •  - If a child is having difficulties keeping up with the learning goals of the class and wonder if there is a delay in the child's intellectual abilities.

  •  - If a child has significant delays in intellectual functioning that might be indicative of intellectual disability and therefore require specialist classes or schools
