Psychological Testing and Therapy - your questions answered

An Intelligence Quotient (IQ) test is an assessment that measures a range of cognitive abilities and provides a score that is intended to serve as a measure of an individual’s intellectual abilities and potential.

An I.Q. score is essentially a standard way of comparing intellectual ability with people of the same age.

 IQ testing can be used for a wide range of purposes including:

 

  • Assessing cognitive abilities including memory, speed, learning, and attention
  • Measuring giftedness (for organisations such as MENSA)
  • Educational assessment and placement
  • Assessment and diagnosis of intellectual disability
  • Job candidate evaluation by some companies

Our Clinical Psychologists only use Gold Standard, internationally recognised tests such as the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC) and the Wechsler Individual Achievement Test (WIAT). These tests are widely accepted in most countries and educational institutions.

The process of ADHD diagnosis should involve the input of multiple sources of information including parents and teachers and include a thorough assessment of ADHD symptoms listed above. Specialist Child Psychologists at childrenplus Noida, can gather information and undertake a series of psychological assessment tasks to clarify the nature of the difficulties. As a result, they will be able to see if there are any other factors that may be leading to these problems. Child Psychologists can also be part of the management plan for the ADHD symptoms.

An IQ test (cognitive assessment) consists of a series of questions and tasks that measure understanding and problem-solving skills. Children usually enjoy the experience, as the tasks are similar to puzzles. 

No. Only qualified and registered Clinical Psychologists can conduct and interpret IQ test results. All our testing psychologists are RCI-registered clinical psychologists.
