My son was going to a Montessori school, but this year he started going to a public school(a very good one). We found out the district has a very good gifted program, and we were thinking that he might be gifted, so we had him tested. My son could read when he was about 4 and I caught him(and video taped) writing the names of his thomas trains names by looking each letter written underneath of each train and writing them diligently on his write-erase board. He plays piano, in fact got many trophies in last 3 years. His teacher says he is the first student of his who has a perfect pitch. He loves math and pretty good at it. He calls himself a_the_problem solver ( he fixes his toys using different materials and says problem solved
...Well, but he doesnt like to explain ( or can not explain what he knows), as if he cant put the correct words together. I speak to him Turkish in %90 of the time while his dad speaks to him in English.
He is accepted to the gifted program, but just on the verge.....
After he was tested first time, they said the result is split and they needed to test him again. So about 2 weeks ago, he was tested again and also given an achievement test on the same day. Here are the results:
First test: WASI-II
FULL IQ: 120
Second test: SB-V
There is a kind of point system says:
Points Possible: 20
Points assigned: 11
There is a chart underneath for Points vs. IQ Score where The IQ score for the assigned point 11 is given as 132.
Achievement test: KTEA-II
Area : Math
Points possible: 10
Points assigned: 10
My question is the verbal score seems to be very low, should I be worried? Do you think that could be a sign of LD?
What is the actual IQ of my son according to those numbers? is it 120, 124 or 132?
