ACADEMIC BATTERY (PSYCHO-EDUCATIONAL TESTS)
A child who is underperforming in school needs a battery of standardized tests which evaluate various skills required for successful learning. We perform a battery of tests which are accepted across most countries & are 100% valid in all schools and other institutes. The tests included in the battery are IQ test, ADHDt, WRAT or DTLD and if necessary projective tests like CAT, TAT or HTP.
An intelligence quotient (IQ) is a total score derived from several standardized tests designed to assess human intelligence. IQ scores are used for educational placement, assessment of intellectual disability, and evaluating job applicants. Even when students improve their scores on standardized tests, they do not always improve their cognitive abilities, such as memory, attention and speed.
