    Sir/MadamI want to discuss something regarding my 11 year old son, who is studying in class VI at OP Jindal HS School at Raigarh.He is not doing results in exams as per standard norm. So, we are worried about his future course of study & results. We have heard that at NIMHANS there are facilities of IQ test for children. So my questions are:1. Can we do his IQ test at NIMHANS & if so then what is the suitable time and procedure?2.If it is done, then is it with application of any medicine or not.We do not want to get it done with help of medicine. Pl clarrify?3.Who is the contact person for this?4.Myself & my wife both are service holder, so taking long leave is quite difficult for us.Hence, let us know what is the minimum time needed for it.me mail id is ashok535@rediffmail.comWith Best RegardsAshok Bhattacharjee
