Can you give a 16 month old an IQ test?

If so, who gives these tests?


Answer by  glow (120)

The most standard IQ test for young children (Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence) can be administered to a child after the age of 2 years & 6 months. The test is given by a psychologist or trained tester.

There are no mainstream IQ tests for 16 month olds. However, if you are truly interested, do a web search on the subject because many research psychologists have been trying to come up with something that works for a long time now. Keep in mind that it wouldn't be a one time deal.

There is no reliable way to test intelligence in a child this young. A child psychologist can determine if a child is developmentally delayed, but this is different.

No. You can give tests to see how they are progressing, but an actual IQ test there isn't such a thing.

These are those who will give IQ tests to very young children, but I wouldn't hold that as a reliable test. There are just to many variables at that age.
