Hi! Yes, she will be three in a month, and learned English in September (she was a monolingual Spanish speaker until then). I think you're right on all fronts-- DYS would be the reason we would test, and I'm pretty sure it starts at 5. She's having a great time in her very play based preschool, even though she just taught herself to read (not something school or her parents taught her). It's a darling age.
I think that my anxious posts are mostly trying to get a handle on the situation, "figure things out" "get ahead of this," etc.
My parents met in Mensa, I ceilinged an IQ test in second grade and my schooling was a train wreck. I was shy, socially miserable, had terrible citizenship grades, and was bored out of my mind in school, even when I got sent to the GATE program in third grade. I'm scared because she's so much like how I was (except, thankfully, so far less shy and has a sunny personality). The fact that this kind of thing might be hereditary terrifies me. Clearly, I've got my own issues to work out around this.
I just want her to get the help I never got, which it seems like DYS provides.
There's just not a lot on bilingual kids and gifted testing, either. My husband and his family are also super bright, but no testing was ever done on that side-- they're from S. America.
Despite my anxiety, I am having a great deal of fun with her-- she's a blast.
