Welcome to TalentIgniter.com! After more than a year of setting up and refining this unique assessment tool, we are so excited to at last be "live."
The heart and hallmark of TalentIgniter, and our first product, is the Ruf Estimates™ of Levels of Gifted Online Assessment. This is the result of many, many years of Dr. Ruf’s research, experience and work, and there is nothing else like it.
This inventory, which parents complete online from their own records of their children's early development, gives an estimate of where a child fits intellectually compared to others the same age. It gives parents an idea of the eventual tested IQ range, intellectual strengths and weaknesses, and then what a child like this needs in order to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally - at home and at school. The Ruf Estimates™ Developmental Milestones information is from birth to age six (although, for exceptionally bright youngsters, it can be done as early as age 3). The whole idea is to arm parents with important information before they choose a school, before their child starts underachieving or having any problems in school. One size does not fit all, so parents need to know what their own children need and how their own children are likely to fare in school. Dr. Ruf has always been concerned about empowering parents to make more of their own decisions regarding their children’s educations, and helping them educate themselves is the first step in that process.
Our long range goal at TalentIgniter is to provide a "cradle to grave" site which will offer tools to help both children and adults make the most of their innate abilities. Soon we will be adding tools and resources about personality differences, gender differences, Ruf Estimates™ for adults, and much more.
Our low introductory price of $45 for The Ruf Estimates™ Online Assessment is available until October 1.
