Serving the North Shore Area

Helping Minds Behavioral Health, LLC, conducts evaluations to determine if students are eligible for the classification of Gifted.   The criteria and procedures are legally mandated and set forth in Bulletin 1508.  The procedures include parent and teacher interviews, intellectual assessment, and individually administered tests of reading and mathematics.  The composite reading and math scores are those that must be used for eligibility requirements.  A comprehensive report of the evaluation findings is given to the school board by parents.  Professionals from Helping Minds will also attend the IEP meetings to explain evaluation findings if this service is desired/needed.
