Intellectually precocious children or high-potentiality

We carry out psychometric tests to evaluate the intellectual process (formerly called IQ). These tests are used to diagnose intellectual precociousness. This trouble doesn’t belong to the learning troubles category but does have an obvious impact on children’s schooling.
Children with a high-potential are able to reason above the average capacity of other children of their age. Their intellectual functioning is specific. The scientific community sometimes refers to their thinking process as ‘arborescent thinking”.

This condition can have an impact on children’s schooling, socialisation, or mood (weak self-esteem, depression...). These elements must be taken into account to create the best schooling conditions.
