It’s every parent’s dream: to see their small child get the best education at the best school available. But even gifted children must compete to earn a place in the nation’s most prestigious elementary schools, and being accepted often hinges on a Stanford-Binet I.Q. score. No wonder parents want to know how to prepare their child for the Stanford-Benet, the test of intelligence most commonly administered by American schools for the gifted.
To answer this need, the psychologists and teachers at Bright Kids NYC Inc., a tutoring facility for gifted preschool children, have created a guide book to I.Q. testing called The Stanford-Binet Handbook. In 90 pages, it delves into the history of the Stanford-Binet, how the test is structured, and the kinds of questions it asks. Dozens of sample questions are included, drawn from different sections of the exam. The last half of the book explains how to prepare a preschooler for test day, including what not to do.
“Gifted schools typically disqualify a child’s application if the child demonstrates pre-knowledge of the test during the I.Q. screening,” said Bige Doruk, director and founder of Bright Kids NYC. “That makes it important to prep them in a way that retains their innocence and shields them from exposure to the actual test. But test-related activities can be introduced, which prepares them for a successful experience on the day of the I.Q. exam.”
The Stanford-Binet Handbook is available for purchase through the Bright Kids NYC website. For information, go to http://www.brightkidsnyc.com or call 917-5394-575.
