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


    IQ test


    (intellectual functioning), such as


  • Wechsler Intelligence Test for Children-Fifth Edition (WISC-V)
  • Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence (WPPSI-IV)
  • Stanford-Binet Fifth Edition (SB5)


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.
