What is IQ?

IQ or Intelligence Quotient is a total score derived from several standardized tests designed to assess human intelligence. Historically, IQ is a score obtained by dividing a person's mental age score, obtained by administering an intelligence test, by the person's chronological age, both expressed in terms of years and months.

It essentially reflects how well you did on a specific test as compared to other people of your age group. While tests may vary, the average IQ on many tests is 100, and 68 percent of scores lie somewhere between 85 and 115.

How to Increase IQ for Kids With Easy Ways

If parents grasp the golden period of brain development and practice the following habits, the child's intelligence will be improved very quickly.

In addition to innate factors, a child's IQ is determined by the environment and family. Each child will have only one peak period to develop brain IQ.


In the book "Exercise Transforms the Brain" by Associate Professor John Reddy from Harvard Medical School mentioned the link between exercise and the brain. After 20 years of research on this issue, he came to the conclusion: "Exercise not only strengthens the body, but also strengthens the brain and makes children smarter."

A study published in the Journal of Psychological Science January 2012 concluded that reading to children combined with interaction can increase children's IQ by more than 6 points.
