Why should I get private gifted testing rather than
through the school system?
The biggest advantage of having a gifted evaluation
done privately is the testing is scheduled at the
most appropriate time for you and your child. Gifted
Testing done through the public school system often
can be a long process, and getting the results may
take as long as a full school year from the time of
Another advantage of Private
Gifted Testing is that you (and you alone) control the
test results and information. Many parents are concerned that their
child’s teacher will not challenge them if the child
does not test in the “Gifted” range (or if they
achieve a score that places the child
within the "Average" range). If you want to know your
child’s abilities, and then use the results how you

child’s strengths. For example:

Additionally, Learning Profiles Customized
Evaluation Report is far superior to many
"standardized" reports often prepared by test
practitioners. Learning Profiles customized
reports detail your child’s cognitive profile in
great depth. Additionally, recommendations are
included in Learning Profiles reports that are
specific to your child’s profile, rather than a
cookie-cutter statement saying if the child is or is
