This area of our services addresses the full range of issues regarding whether or not a child is gifted. Services in this area answer these questions:
- “Is my child gifted?”
- “How can I have my child assessed for giftedness?, and
- “How can I help my “brainy” child improve their emotional intelligence (EQ)?”
We also serve talented children (e.g., elite athletes) and adults (leaders, visionaries, entrepreneurs) by providing performance-enhancing assessment and coaching. In this area, we do not limit ourselves to a narrow medical diagnostic model, because what improves performance is not a generic diagnosis, but rather a thorough assessment of how one’s personality functions.
Techniques we use in order to provide the very best evaluations include interviewing teachers, coaches, friends or coworkers in order to help you learn about aspects of yourself, which you may be totally unaware, of that are affecting your success.
