    Well, I'm bummed because they are requesting more information from me. My son scored in the high 150s on the WISC and I submitted videos of him independently reading books and using our computer at 2 years old. I'm kind of surprised that isn't enough. Maybe it's because portfolio samples are not recent enough. Now I have to pay for an achievement test. Oh well. I think it is worth it so we will do it.

    Brandijocelyn could you just submit a more recent portfolio? We didn't have achievement tests so we did videos/worksheets in addition to WISC.
