What opportunity does it offer?
Most of our clients feel a sort of „Wow!” and „Aha!” experience. It is revealed in less than fifty minutes, what deep cognitive weaknesses are responsible for the every day struggles in school or life. The good news is that after identifying these weaknesses, we can strengthen them by brain training. In other words, we are able to treat the root causes of learning difficulties instead of treating the symptoms. This way we save lots of time and money!
Which skills are measured?
Our test is based on the Gibson Learning Model, originating from the Cattell-Horn-Carrol (CHC) theory of intelligence. The CHC-theory describes thinking processes as complex converging processes of different cognitive skills, including logic and reasoning, visual and auditory processing, working memory and long-term memory, and processing speed.
The test measures the following core cognitive skills with high validity and reliability:
- Working Memory and Long-term Memory
- Processing Speed
- Auditory Processing
- Visual Processing
- Logic and Reasoning
- Speech Perception
- Attention Cluster
The Gibson-test reveals which cognitive skills are weak and which ones are strong and also delivers a total IQ. It is a sensitive tests and the assessment time is only an hour! After the assessment a detailed report is presented to all our clients and the results can be seen in percentile points, standard points and in case of children, even in age-equivalent mental years.
