Dr. Rita has been conducting IQ testing for children, teens and young adults for over 20 years. She recognizes that people with gifted intelligence need to be identified as they often exhibit special needs in terms of meeting their cognitive potential needs.
Parents interested in making an application for their children to additional various gifted programs, such as the Davidson Institute and The Mirman School, need to have their child assessed with an IQ test.
Dr. Rita Eichenstein, in collaboration with The Mirman School for Gifted Children in Los Angeles, CA is one of the licensed psychologists designated to conduct IQ testing which would to allow a child to apply for admission. She has been working with the Mirman School in this capacity for over 15 years.
Administering an IQ test usually takes approximately 90 minutes for children, but the time for feedback for parents varies. If parents would like to schedule additional time with Dr. Rita to discuss their child's learning style or address other personal concerns about their child or parenting their child, additional time will be scheduled.
For IQ testing, children will take one of the following Wechsler tests:
WPPSI IV (ages 4-6) (Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scales of Intelligence, Fourth Edition)
WISC V (ages 6-16) (Wechsler Intelligence Scales for Children, Fifth Edition)
For teens and young adults, the following is offered:
WAIS-IV (Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scales, Fourth Edition)
The Stanford Binet 5 is an IQ test which is also available as an alternative test, however the Wechsler Scales are the primary test offered. If a parent has questions about which test to administer, this should be discussed in advance of your appointment, as children can only take one IQ test during their scheduled session.
