IQ Testing in London at Harley Therapy™

Could an IQ test help you or your child? 

  • Does your child have learning differences you worry affect their intellectual ability? 
  • Or do they seem bored at school, and you’d like to know if they are gifted? 
  • Perhaps it's you yourself you’d like tested, to help with training and vocational choices? 

What is IQ testing? 

An IQ test, or ‘intelligence quotient’ test, might better be called an ‘intellectual test’. It measures mental ability and agility. This includes: 

  • language and math skills 
  • problem solving ability
  • logical reasoning 
  • spatial relations
  • how well you retain what you learn. 

What can an IQ test help with?

By identifying learning styles and strengths, an IQ test can help you find tools, support, and treatment to reach your potential. 

IQ testing, alongside other assessments, also serves to help diagnose learning, developmental, or cognitive differences such as:

IQ tests offered at Harley Therapy™

At Harley Therapy our educational psychologists only use highly regarded, industry standard IQ tests. These are: 

WISC Test (Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children)

An IQ test for kids aged six to 16. The WISC offers a traditional IQ score, but also a score for verbal comprehension, fluid reasoning, working memory, processing speed, and visual/spatial. 

WAIS 4 (Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale)

The WAIS 4 is made up of 10 core subtests and five supplemental subtests, resulting in scores for perceptual reasoning, verbal comprehension, working memory, and processing speed.
