    My son's scores on WPPSI III
    COMPOSITE
    Verbal (VIQ)139
    Performance (PIQ)152
    Full Scale (FSIQ)149

    WIAT-II
    COMPOSITE
    SCORE
    Oral Language 125
    SUBTESTS
    Word Reading 152
    Math Reasoning 148
    Listening Comprehension 119
    Oral Expression 122

    I know the WPPSI scores qualify, but do the WIAT II scores? Should I send a portfolio?

    I think you would need more information. I looked back and it seems your son is not 5 yet, is that right? I don't know much about the WIAT, but I know that some scores you can't calculate based on the age (too young).

    I think you should submit the both sets of scores but also a portfolio.

    Yes He's 4 so we will apply when he turns 5. Since the results didn't show exactly the same names as what the requirements said, I wasn't sure, but the only math and reading scores that are there are high. We have LOTS of portfolio things he's done that show him writing or doing math at a 2-3rd grade level so I could send that in if I need to, but if the scores are enough...hooray smile

    Yes, I think that the names are different because they require more subtests to get the broad scores. Still send them in, but you will need the portfolio as well. That way you avoid the automatic "need more information". They still might ask for more, but if you give them more from the beginning, it is easier for them to make a decision.

    You will receive an email at the end of the month. So long as the application and all supporting documents were received by the 1st.

    It might take less than that, but better to not expect anything early...

    Good luck!
