How Does IQ Testing Work?

IQ testing is short for intellectual quotient testing and assesses one’s intellectual potential (as opposed to performance). “Intelligence testing alone can be helpful for finding areas where one excels in or needs extra support. This can be helpful for learning how to be more effective at work or school, or to find what might be a good career path,” says Sean Hayes PsyD of Thriveworks Counseling in Sterling, VA. There are different IQ tests, some of the most popular being:

  1. Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale: This IQ test assesses several cognitive factors, including quantitative reasoning, fluid reasoning, and working memory.
  2. Peabody Individual Achievement Test: This test is designed for those between 5 and 22 years. It uses a survey to measure one’s achievements in school and returns an average grade range.
  3. Differential Ability Scales: These tests are designed for kids and adolescents, as well, as they measure cognitive abilities and can include other measurements, such as one’s reading, math, and spelling level/skills.
  4. Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale: This test is designed for adults (but can also be used for older adolescents) and measures their intelligence and cognitive ability.

An average IQ score is 100. Scores that exceed 100, but fall below 130 are considered high intelligence, while a score of 130 or above signifies extreme intelligence. Now, scores that fall below 100 are considered to be below average; however, they don’t cause serious concern until they reach the 70-75 and below range. Research shows that kids diagnosed with an intellectual disability typically receive a score between 55 and 70.

If you or your child receives a below average score, your Thriveworks Manassas psychologist can order additional testing to confirm diagnosis of an intellectual disability (if necessary) and also offer a treatment plan. We are here to guide and support you through testing and the treatment process.

What Exactly Is an Intellectual Disability?

Limited intellectual functioning and/or adaptive behavior signifies an intellectual disability. Together, intellectual functioning and adaptive behavior skills fuel our reasoning, learning, problem-solving skills and enable us to complete everyday tasks. Intellectual disabilities present at an early age; however, sometimes people don’t receive testing until much later in life. When IQ testing is administered, the individual can better understand how to capitalize on their strengths and improve weaker areas.

Now, IQ tests test one’s intellectual functioning, while other tests assess one’s adaptive behavior, which is another important factor when it comes to intellectual disabilities. Adaptive behavior includes one’s conceptual, practical, and social skills—all of which prove important to daily living. If you or your child receives a low score on an IQ test, know that your Thriveworks Manassas provider will be here to guide you. Our mental health professionals design a unique treatment plan for every client, based on their unique needs. We’ll help you every step of the way.

Lisa

★★★★★
I started with Thriveworks and Lisa 3-4 months ago and I was nervous about telling a "stranger" my deepest issues and things I'm not always comfortable admitting myself. I have to say she has been amazing through an really tough relationship break and other things I was or am going through in life. She makes you feel comfortable and truly listens, providing support and options for situations which allow me to be able to look at situations differently. She has made an incredible improvement on my life and I always look forward to meeting with her. It has become a breath of fresh air for me. She is amazing and I consider her a friend. You can't go wrong.

Lisa Cornelius- My wonderful experience with her.

★★★★★
I worked with Lisa Cornelius for more than 6 months and she really is amazing. She helped me through my struggles by giving me strategies that could help me involve my well being. She is honest and she will connect with your situation by putting herself in your shoes. I've never connected with a therapist like I have with her. She really knows what she is doing. I highly recommend her!

Counseling appreciation

★★★★★
A note of thanks to my counselor Lisa Cornelius. I have seen her for 2 years now and through our sessions an finding that I am a good person who has needs and a future that I never knew at 72 I coukd look forward to. Our lives go full circle sometimes and after bad things happen we start to think we have no right to try to be anyone but who others think we should be....not true! Hopefully Lisa and I can continue this journey and I can learn to relax in the real me and be content and happy with myself...thank you Lisa ....

Ms. Lisa

★★★★★
Ms. Lisa is a very amazing counselor. She helps you understand and can relate to you, which makes you feel better. Her way of counseling is different from past counselor. It was more dull with my past counselor, but with Ms. Lisa it is different. It is better to me. I definitely recommend Ms. Lisa because everytime I leave I feel lighter and a little bit better. 😊

It was an excellent experience.

★★★★★
It was an excellent experience. I have been suffering from high anxiety and was skeptical about talking with someone who didn’t know me. After my first session I could finally see light at the end of the tunnel. I cannot wait for my next appointments so that I can learn how to take my life back.
