Some characteristics may be confused with a diagnosis like ADHD. That’s why a psychological evaluation is recommended
WE RECOMMEND AN EVALUATION OF YOUR CHILD FOR GIFTEDNESS IN CASE:
-You notice that he/she is not happy in his learning environment
-Your child exhibits some of the characteristics mentioned above
-You want your child to apply to a gifted program for talented or gifted kids and you need a psychological evaluation in Broward County for admission
-You suspect that your child is gifted but may have a learning disability that is not letting him/her fully develop.
Some children feel out of sync with their classmates so being able to bring options according to their capabilities can guarantee a better future for them and peace of mind for you.
If you want to help your child thrive in life, it is important to get to know his/her talents and challenges.
