Gifted Testing

Is your child eligible for gifted services?  
This is an important question and can have a tremendous impact on a child's educational journey.  

What is a gifted learner?  
Florida's current definition of giftedness is:  One who has superior intellectual development and is capable of high performance.  The purpose of specialized education for gifted students is to provide appropriate educational experiences that foster the development of their potential and their unique abilities.  

How is eligibility for gifted programming decided?
This is a decision made by your child's educational team (including parents, teachers, administrators and so forth). One essential factor is whether a student has very superior intellectual development as measured by an individually administered standardized test of intelligence.

How can New Path help?
Although the public schools do provide free gifted testing, parents and children often face a very long screening process, a lengthy wait for the testing to occur, and another wait to learn the results.  At New Path, we offer accurate, valid testing that can be used by the schools in determining eligibility for gifted services.  Appointments are often available within a week, and a written report of the testing results is provided to the parents in a timely manner.  

What is the cost?
The testing is individually done, takes approximately 2 hours, and the fee is $350.  There is a follow up meeting with the parents as well, at no extra charge.  We are also able to offer reduced cost testing for low income families.
