Is my child unusually smart or advanced?


How do I ignite and encourage my child's gifts and talents?


Do I know the appropriate educational and school options for my child?


What are my child's emotional and social needs?


What resources are available for helping with these issues?


Do you wonder about all these things, but you're not sure you're ready to go to the expense of formal testing? More and more of our clients start with The Ruf Estimates™ of Levels of Gifted Online Assessment as the first, affordable step towards discovering their child's innate abilities, prior to proceeding with Dr. Ruf's Three-Step Process.


WHAT IT IS:  The Ruf Estimates™ of Levels of Gifted Online Assessment is a survey based on developmental milestones filled out by the parents, and it works very well at predicting your son’s or daughter’s ability level. The results provide a specific estimate of IQ range, with profiles in five areas: overall intelligence, fluid reasoning, verbal abilities, quantitative reasoning abilities, and spatial abilities. The feedback results are divided into a spectrum of 13 different estimated IQ ranges, progressing from Average for his or her age group all the way up the intellectual scale to the highest, most Exceptionally and Profoundly Gifted.


WHAT YOU GET:  Besides the assessment results, the feedback includes a learner guide, types of schools best suited for each level, school needs, social needs, and an action plan. There are also links to hundreds of other online resources. In addition, the website offers lists of recommended books; lists of parent recommended  toys, supplies, websites, and other products; a blog; and a monthly newsletter.


WHY IT'S IMPORTANT:  The single most important factor for achieving academic - as well as social and emotional - success is whether or not a child fits the school. So knowing how smart your child is can be critical, because then you can find the correct academic setting.



At TalentIgniter, home of The Ruf Estimates™ of Levels of Gifted Online Assessment, our primary goal is educating parents of young children so they can make the best educational choices for their children from the very start.
