Looking for a quick and fun test to see how your preschooler is progressing before he or she begins Primary One? Let them take a fun non-verbal IQ test.
The Weschler Intelligence Scale is an IQ test that is often used by school psychologists to determine cognitive ability. This non-verbal Intelligence test is designed for measuring child’s I.Q from five years to and 7 years old.
Why is Non-Verbal IQ important for your child?
When your child enters Primary One, he or she will realise the importance of nonverbal intelligence. It is imperative for every child because it enables students to analyze and solve complex problems without relying upon or being limited by language abilities. Many mathematical concepts, physics problems, computer science tasks, and science problems require strong reasoning skills which stem from non-verbal intelligence.
Non-Verbal IQ is the ability to analyze information and solve problems using visual, or hands-on reasoning. It is the ability to make sense of and act on the world without necessarily using words.
This IQ test is specifically designed to test the ability of children to
1) Tell the differences and similarities from one object and another
2) How to determine mathematical progressions
3) How to manage with quantities and spatial relationships
Explanations: The only one is a carrot, where the others are animals or birds.
Our children’s thinking in their early years is naturally dominated by their perception or what their senses tell them. To help them in the learning and development of various abstract numeracy concepts, it is vital to equip them with opportunities to:
1) Explore with objects
2) Identify written words or symbols in their daily play experiences
3) Talk about their solutions when solving problems
These opportunities will help them in the development of skills and concepts such as matching, sorting, comparing, ordering, patterning, counting and number sense, basic shapes, and space.
