NYC PRIVATE SCHOOLS ADMISSIONS TESTING AND PREPARATION
If your child is applying to a private school for children with special needs or for gifted students,
you may need to submit a full neuropsychological evaluation, IQ test, or academic
achievement
report
. Please call our office to schedule an appointment. More than one visit may be needed for
some children.

It is never too early to start preparing for the admissions process.

Find out where your child stands in terms of academics and various cognitive skills and
determine which skills are weak and must be improved before the actual admissions process
begins. We provide IQ testing, cognitive testing, and achievement testing to children of all ages.
You can request an IQ test scores and/or academic test scores for your children now, way before
they have to sit in for the admissions test. It does not matter how old is your child now, as IQ test
scores are always compared to the current age norms.  It is always better to start preparing the
for admissions testing early, so that your child has enough time to strengthen the academic and
cognitive skills that will be vigorously tested during the admissions.

Most private middle schools, high schools, boarding schools and military schools use  
standardized tests that measure verbal and quantitative reasoning, reading comprehension,
essay writing and mathematics abilities, as well as overall ability to learn and quickly acquire new
academic material. High scores on standardized admissions test are required, but strong critical
reasoning skills, memory, attention to detail, quick and accurate information processing, good
organizational and planning skills, and sustained focus are also essential for private school
admissions testing.

We provide
educational coaching and cognitive training to improve reading speed and
comprehension, attention, reaction speed, sustained focus, reasoning and logic, for overall
enhancement of cognitive and learning abilities to meet the increased demands of a middle
school academic curriculum.
Our approach is based on latest achievements in
neuroscience
that help improve attention, concentration, short term memory, organization,
reaction speed, reading speed, reading comprehension, logic, critical thinking, overall brain
functioning and, consequently, confidence, motivation and academic performance in any subject.

Some students who suffer from ADHD, ADD, LD, Dyslexia, Slow Reading Speed, Attention Deficit,
Auditory or Visual Processing Disorder, Math and Reading Learning Disorders, Dysgraphia, or
Test Anxiety, may qualify for
test accommodations (e.g., extra time on standardized tests,
extra breaks, scrap paper, calculator, separate and quiet testing location, read and re-read test
questions and instructions, indicate response on the test booklet). Test accommodations allow
students compensate for their neurological and psychological disorders.
