The Intelligence Quotient (IQ) is a cognitive and intellectual test that involves gathering information on an individual's performance on a standardised intelligence test, the WAIS-IV.
The goal of a IQ assessment is to obtain an accurate profile of an individual's intellectual functioning, thinking and reasoning skills, and cognitive strengths as well as their challenges. It is used to assist in developing learning strategies and recommendations for future management.
The WAIS-IV is a widely recognised test for adults and older adolescents designed to measure intelligence of individuals aged 16–90 years. It provides an estimate of general intellectual functioning, known as the IQ score.
At the conclusion of the cognitive and intellectual assessment, a written report will detail your results, your IQ score, and written recommendations.
If you wish to discuss your results in more details, an additional Review session can be booked with your psychologist that is eligible for a Medicare rebate if you have a Mental Health Care Plan from your GP.
