We have taken DS to an educational psychologist, and she has suggested that his needs might be better served at a different school than he currently attends. Before starting school his iq tested 140. He is currently in K and he has undergone a different iq test as part of an assessment to explore possible 2e issues. His IQ has tested 150. The assessment of possible ADHD is not finished. His school is not overly concerned with his behaviour at the moment, so he is not having serious behaviour issues or anything. We are debating trying to continue working with his current school with new results when finished or trying another school. My husband likes the idea of moving somewhere else just for a change.
His current school seems open to working with us, but they don't have any specific support for gifted or teachers with specific training or experience in gifted education. If we can find a school that looks like it would be a better fit, we will consider moving, otherwise we will continue to work with his current school. Our main concern with the current school is that he does not seem to be getting work targeted at his current level. But he is only in Kindy, maybe they will be able to cater better as he gets older?
Does anyone know of or have experience with schools that are a good fit for gifted students?
