There is no single, set test to evaluate a student for a gifted or talented program. Instead, your doctor will consult with you to develop a picture of your student’s unique strengths and weaknesses and choose a suite of measures to evaluate from there. This individualized approach ensures that your student’s evaluation is the best representation of their abilities.
These measures may include a combination of:
- Cognitive evaluation
- Academic performance
- Observation of creativity
- Executive functioning
- Other measures as determined by the doctor

Most students have areas of strength as well as areas of weakness, and knowledge of this pattern can inform how they should be taught in the most effective manner. This could be in the form of classroom recommendations for enhancing their current program, or alternative school placements which tap into the student’s strengths while supporting their weaknesses. With our comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation, Dr. Malkin can help you ensure your student receives the best education for their abilities.
