Meer dan IQ, for counseling and coaching gifted children, their parents and their schools.
Self Regulated Learning (Ziegler A. and Stoeger H.) by using also a portfolio (Fisher C.) is the heart of my strategy for these children in order to help them to explore, travel and learn to know their world and how to survive. Solution focused approximation (Jong, P. de, Berg, I.K) will support the child to work to strengthen weaknesses.
Meer dan IQ is allowed to use the WISC III in order to get good diagnosis next to an examination, school results and reports from school, parents and of course the child itself. This all in order to compose the right program which pupil, school and parents will embrace.
Meer dan IQ recommends school teams about giftedness, how to recognize these children and how to meet their needs in attitude, and weekly tuned programs. Meer dan IQ also recommends schools to start peer groups in little classes with special programs for gifted children.
Meer dan IQ is involved at Pittige Plustorens. As school counselor I advise schools about this enrichment program for children with average IQ and gifted children. By using this program underachievers will show up. The portfolio during each program of Pittige Plustorens will enable the teachers to see the progress of the pupil and monitor it as well. I have over 25 year experience in primary schools as a teacher and remedial teacher.

The motto of Meer dan IQ is related to Golda Meïr: It does not matter who you want to be, it is important to choose the road you 'll drive.
