What if you can’t afford private testing? Are the school required to provide testing if you ask?
This may depend on your particular situation. I suggest you speak with an advocate, who should be able to provide you this info. In the past, I have spoken with Michigan Alliance for Families: http://www.michiganallianceforfamilies.org/. They may be able to answer your question. Good luck!!
I had my daughter tested by the school. They told me they usually don’t test to identify gifted children. However, they agreed to test her because I had concerns about her processing speed and possible attention deficit. I think they are much more likely to agree if there is another reason for testing. Good luck!
Do each one of the doctor’s on this list test for IQ level, What age do you begin the testing?
As of the time of posting, I believe most or all of the doctors listed did test for IQ level. Your best bet is to call a particular doctor and ask. I’ve heard that kids as young as 2 can be IQ tested, but I’ve also heard that age 7 is around the optimal age. Some parents test sooner to get their kids into Mensa or another program as early as possible or for early entry to a gifted school.
Do you know of any resources in or near Grand Rapids for IQ testing of children?
No, I don’t. I suggest you check with any gifted schools in the Grand Rapids area and ask who they use for gifted child testing. Usually gifted schools require kids be tested as a condition of entry.
