    Hi all,

    I just got the mail. DD8 was not accepted for DYS. The WIAT results I sent in were just shy of 99.9 and they stated that and the portfolio examples were not sufficient in demonstrating she is funcioning at the level they require for acceptance.
    The letter welcomed us to re-apply in 6 months if we have achievement test scores that demonstrates her level of precocity.

    Thanks!!!!!!!!
    Somewhat disappointed, but that's okay. We may try for the Woodcock, because, DD loves tests and asked if she could take another one after the WIAT.

    We'll see. In the meantime, I've gotten so much out of this forum to help her, I am glad I went throught the process!!

    Also, Davidson sent along a very nice additional letter of great resources to use for advocation and such.

    Wow, I'm so disappointed for you. That 0.3 percentile difference sounds like it could be have been in your favor on another day. I admire your attitude!

    Oh man, I would be really disappointed, too. I think you have an excellent outlook, though. And it's great that your dd will enjoy taking another test...that is probably the approach I'd take in your shoes.

    No mail here yet, but it should arrive in the next hour or two. I don't even want to leave the house. (pathetic!)

    Incogneato,

    Your dd is so young and so close. Whether or not she is admitted at a later date, given her intelligence and her advocate mom, she will do great!

    No kidding! When I hear about kid's like 'Neato's daughter not getting in I feel like I shouldn't even be hanging out on this board. It is really such a fine and difficult line that they have to draw.

    Here's to some quick mail for the rest of you!
