About the Test

The Gibson Test was initially designed in 1999 by Dr. Ken Gibson, a specialist in pediatric visual processing, who has devoted his entire career to helping people with learning disabilities overcome their learning challenges. The Gibson Test is used to identify cognitive strengths and weaknesses in the brain. Whether you are the parent of a struggling student, a parent or adult looking for a baseline test of current skills levels, an adult seeking help for yourself, a clinician seeking to help a client or patient, or an educator or school looking for answers for one or more students, or baseline testing for your whole class or school, The Gibson Test will give you invaluable information about brain performance, and help you determine the next best step.

The Gibson Test is based on Gibson’s Learning Model which is grounded in the Cattell-Horn-Carrol (CHC) theory. The CHC Theory is a model that describes thinking as a combined set of multiple cognitive abilities including skills such as logic and reasoning, long-term and short-term memory, visual and auditory processing, and processing speed.
