Many parents wonder about their child’s special abilities and how they can support them. You may have questions like: How advanced is my child? How does their intelligence compare with their academic abilities? What about other areas like creativity and motivation? How can I support my child’s talents and abilities? These questions and more can be answered by the Potential Plus UK Potential Spotter.
What is the Potential Spotter?
The Potential Spotter is based on the Gifted Ratings Scales (GRS), a proven norm-referenced tool that provides the foundation for robust results from the questionnaires. It asks for your understanding of your child’s performance in relation to other children their age (with optional teacher input), through an easy, but scientific and detailed, questionnaire. It is a first step to understanding more about your child’s abilities in a range of areas.
The results from this questionnaire are interpreted to create a description of your child’s individual profile, which is then combined with relevant background information, to provide resources to further your understanding of how to best support your child.
Potential Spotter investigates your understanding of your child’s abilities in core areas that have been shown to indicate or support high learning potential. These are:
- Intellectual Ability
- Academic Achievement
- Artistic Talent
- Motivation for Learning
- (for ages 7+) Leadership
What Do Parents Receive from the Potential Spotter?
The Potential Spotter report breaks down the probability of your child having high learning potential across various key skills based on your observations, as well as investigating their level of motivation to continue learning despite setbacks. From all of this, we create a personalised and easily understandable Potential Spotter report which describes their individual profile and offers resources that will increase your understanding and ability to best support your child.
