your child love to learn? Does he soak up new ideas and information,
seemingly effortlessly? Is she eager for extra challenges and deeper
experiences? If so, gifted testing might be the key to opening some
of those doors.
My name is Paige Frecker, and I am a licensed school
psychologist in private practice in Tampa and the surrounding areas of Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, and Polk counties. I have been working
locally for twelve years. Prior to that I worked in northern
Florida for eight years. I am nationally certified through the National Association of School Psychologists.
As part of my services, I administer
intelligence (IQ) tests that help eligible children qualify for the
Gifted/AGP program in the public school system.

**When considering private assessment, please note that all psychologists practicing privately in Florida must be licensed by the state. Certification alone is not enough for private practice, even if the psychologist is employed by a public school system the rest of the time. Also, be sure that the psychologist you work with is using current tests. Tests become outdated and invalid approximately one year after a new version is released.
Please refer to my FAQs page for more information. This page also includes links to other resources for Gifted children.
