Assessment Services

Telephone intake by our professional staff will be conducted prior to the arrangement of assessment. Due to the large demand on our services, the average waiting time is about 2 to 3 months.

1. Intellectual Assessment

This service will be provided by our Educational or Clinical Psychologist. The assessment session, lasting for about 2 to 3 hours, contains a parent interview and a child assessment using the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children – Fourth Edition (Hong Kong) (WISC-IV(HK)). Afterwards, a psychological report and a debriefing session will be provided to the parent(s) in another session.

Target: Gifted students aged 6-16

Fee: HK$4,200

2. Assessment on the Affective (Social-Emotional) Needs of Gifted Students

This assessment addresses issues relating to areas of social, emotional or behavioural functioning. It may help understand gifted children and youth who are displaying:

  • emotional or behavioural difficulties;
  • difficulties in school learning;
  • difficulties in getting along with others (peers, family); and/or
  • poor self-esteem.

This service will be provided by our Educational or Clinical Psychologist. There will be two assessment sessions (one for the parent(s) and one for the child/youth), each lasting for about 1.5-2 hours. Afterwards, a psychological report and a debriefing session will be provided to the parent(s).

The assessment includes:

  • interview with the parent(s);
  • parent questionnaires;
  • teacher report;
  • behavioural observation and interview with the child or youth; and
  • student questionnaires and projective testing.

In order to gain a comprehensive understanding of the child/youth, parents are expected to present a valid intellectual assessment report of their child. For those students without a previous intellectual assessment, an IQ assessment (1.5 hours) using WISC-IV(HK) will be arranged.

Target: Gifted students aged 6-16 (priority will be given to HKAGE student members)

Fees: HK$6,000 (an extra fee of HK$2,500 for the additional IQ assessment)
