Gifted Testers and Therapists List

Gifted Resources

The map below is a tool that can help families find testers and therapists. If you are just starting your gifted or twice-exceptional journey, your first step might be to have your child tested. Many families find themselves exploring testing for a number of reasons: to better understand how their child learns and experiences the world, to qualify for various educational or enrichment opportunities, or to learn more about other behaviors or experiences their child is having. 

Whatever your reason for pursuing testing, assessment, or counseling, please read the following article to help you consider which professional is right for your family and goals: Considerations for Gifted Testing by the Davidson Institute 

There can be a lot of moving pieces to pursuing and then understanding testing and assessment reports. As you move through this process, you may find our Guides to Gifted Identification, Testing, and Therapy to be helpful as well. 

Map Key:

  • BLACK PIN: Testers with experience assessing gifted and 2e students.
  • PURPLE PIN: Counselors and therapy providers with experience working with gifted and 2e students.

DISCLAIMER: Please know that the Davidson Institute does not endorse any of these testers or therapists. We are merely providing this list of providers based on feedback we’ve received, so you can research and select the professional you are most comfortable working with.

My son is 14yo, very good student but so disorganized, doesn't care about ongoing things, just learned how to tie his shoes, started talking at the age of 3. he is in advanced math program college credits now but I really want to where is he gifted. Is it math? he is very introverted too and this is my concern.

I have lived in MA for over 20 years and I haven't heard of most of the people on your pins in MA. As you probably know, MA has a terrible record for gifted programs, less than 1% of public schools have G/T programs and there's nothing at the state education or legislative level despite nearly 30 years of advocacy. I have been the Parent Liaison for the MA Assoc. for Gifted Ed. (MAGE) and its VP and President.
I am very interested in how you got these names. If they are effective then I will broadcast them to my program's people via social media and I will share them with MAGE. Please advise.

The purple Pin you have in Las Vegas for Tiffany Allen-Duran does not work. The phone numbers are not active.

I would like to have my son Pierre VanSise 9 year old to get tested for gifted program, as he wants to take geography, world history, chemistry classes. We know that he knowledge is sufficient to take these classes, but his current private school does not provide testing for gifted kids. We live in Orange County, Southern California. How do I find the local testing center? Is there online test that he can take? Thank you
