Gifted testing is used to evaluate whether a child is intellectually gifted and would benefit from receiving a more rigorous academic program at school. The gifted test measures overall cognitive abilities, that have been found to be related to school performance.
In order to qualify for entrance into a gifted program, the child must meet the following criteria:
1. A Full Scale IQ Score of 130 or more on an individually administered
(intellectual functioning), such as
2. Exhibit the majority of characteristics of gifted children on a district checklist. The child’s most recent teacher must complete a
checklist of gifted characteristics demonstrating that child shows a need for a challenging or gifted program.
Although parents come in for the gifted evaluation to find out whether or not their child meets criteria for a gifted program, Dr. Cherwony believes that it is important to use the evaluation to gain further insight into the strengths and weaknesses of a child. She will be able to tell parents a child’s particular learning style as well as areas that may be of concern and require early intervention.
Dr. Cherwony includes a feedback session with parents to go over results and to help parents decide the most appropriate school placement for a child. Parents are typically overwhelmed with decisions about their child beginning the school years. Dr. Cherwony helps provide you with a profile of your child’s intellectual and academic status and find what is right for your child.
Dr. Cherwony offers children’s gifted testing in Boca Raton as well as in Palm Beach Gardens. She offers gifted evaluations for children in Florida.
Thank you for the consultation and wonderful service. We were very anxious about getting our daughter tested for gifted placement.
Dr. Cherwony, you made our experience an easy and valuable one. As promised, you spent extensive time
with us helping to determine the best school placement for our daughter.
The feedback we were given was worth every penny!
Thanks again. - Marie D
Dr. Cherwony, you have been an angel in my life. When I first met you at my pre-surgical bariatric evaluation, you told me that food was my addiction and to think about what I was trying to hide from. Your words rang true for me after my surgery and then I realized I needed to see you.
I want to thank you deeply for all your compassion and support during my journey to health and wellness. I can't believe how
much you have taught me. - Lindsay C
My only regret was that I waited 2 months before starting to see Dr. Cherwony. I struggled with depression and loads of guilt following the birth of my first child. It was not how I had expected it to be. It was the most devastating time for me. Thank you so much Dr. C for helping me to understand and deal with my PPD and insomnia, and for helping my family to deal better with myself. - SR
