    Dottie - which tests would be a 160 test? DS had some scores over 160 on WJ Ach. This portfolio business is tough!!!

    Hi Dottie,

    I am waiting for my copy, but I thought I saw 163 with a max of 165 or something along those lines on the achievement tests she was given.

    oh, I'll go back and edit to add that they were achievement tests my DD had (not the ones DYS wants). That's all we have right now. I'm not remembering their names right now. I'm waiting for the scores and report.

    Twinkles -
    Even if you go 'Portfolio' option, I believe you'll be asked to send all the testing you have - even the baby WPPSI from forever ago, and whatever Achievement testing was done recently. I think that this is a good idea, and will help your portfolio.

    Good luck,
    Grinity

    Hello,
    My son was recently accepted to DYS. I am wondering what the typical timeline is for being put in touch with your family consultant. We just got approval for math acceleration from the school board and they would like assistance with setting our ds up in the appropriate classroom/grade. I would love to utilize our consultants expertise, but not sure if it will meet him/her within the timeframe as things are happening now. He was in the June decision month.

    Thanks!

    Contact them and explain, they can probably work something out.
    Congrats on the approval - Yippee!

    Congratulations!

    I don't recall it taking that long before somebody emailed us. Maybe it's in your spam folder?

    It took us a little over a month before we got our FC. But they told us that it would when we got the acceptance notice. I was in a similar situation and sent in a preview letter so the FC would know what we needed her for ASAP.

    Ok, I checked in my email, and my memory is faulty as usual.

    I got the confirmation email on June 4th and that's when they said they were mailing the packet, then it was July 16th when I got the email from the consultant saying she would like to call us. In between there was receiving the packet and sending it back and all that.
