IQ testing gives insight into a child's learning abilities, or aptitude. A general intelligence score (IQ) is derived as well as scores from seven main cognitive functions. By coupling the achievement test with the IQ test, indications of learning discrepancies (disabilities) or giftedness can be seen. A detailed report is included and discussed with the parent.
This test, as well as the WJ III Achievement test, can be used to qualify a child for the Duke TIP program.

We offer a learning style assessment that will help to assess whether your child is an auditory, visual, or kinesthetic learner. In addition, it will assess the strength of each learning modality so you will know what the child's primary learning style is, his secondary style, and the third, or least preferred style of learning. If you teach to a child's primary and secondary styles, especially when presenting new concepts, they are more likely to meet with success and enjoy the learning process. $30
Learning Style Consultation
This consultation includes in depth information about teaching strategies to use with your child's learning style and/or a review of various curricula that are compatible with the various learning styles. Finding curriculum materials to match your child's learning style or incorporating teaching strategies into your existing curriculum that lend to your child's learning style can make a difference in the educational process. This consultation comes with a 55-page resource guide written by Kay and full of information and educational strategies for each learning style, as well as curriculum suggestions for each learning style.
Learning Style Assessment with Consultation and Resource Guide - $65
At the conclusion of your child's testing session, we will go over the scores with you. This is included in the testing fee. However, we do offer an in-depth follow up consultation done a week or so after your child's test. We will take your child's test scores and analyze his / her educational strengths and weaknesses. From this analysis, we will recommend instructional objectives and strategies to use in the coming school year - where you need to strategically focus your teaching efforts. If you have a learning style assessment done on your child, we will also be able to make specific suggestions as to what teaching methods will benefit your child the most. Curriculum suggestions can also be given if desired. $40
