    Thanks- I am new to all this and have trouble finding good info about the different test on the web (and have a hard time finding a contact locally to explain this stuff) It is so great to have this forum!!!! I am learning so much.

    We had a full work up on DS @ 1.5 years ago with a private psych becuase we were worried about LDs (very behind in reading and writing at that time) and he said he was to young at the time to get a true picture weather his issues were caused by his speech (hard to spell and read when having trouble pronouncing words and sounds) or if there were other issues involved. He wanted us to re-evaluate a year later- but DS completely caught up with reading as is improving greatly with spelling so we never did it. Now considering going ahead with it since our insurance will cover it. Hopefully they will do the best and appropriate test if we do go through them. Plus we will have a better explanation of all these results!

    Anyways- Daddy got ahold of someone from the gifted regional office this morning and they seemed really reciptive to helping us out. They started by giving us some one local to talk to who is assigned to DS school. Hopefully this will be a great starting point!!!

    Yeah!!! They are going to let us submit a package for consideration. So excited- I have no clue if his scores are good enough for the program here - but at least we will have the opportunity to try now and that is all I really wanted.

    OP, I think perhaps you are in FCPS? I know that there is a process for kids who move in mid year to test in, but my understanding is that they make you wait until January of the following year for acceptance. But if they are allowing you to submit a package right now, that is a good sign.

    If it is FCPS, they test all second graders with the CoGAT and NNAT, but there are other forms as well and parents can also submit work samples or outside test results.

    We are in FCPS and the GT identification process here is arcane and mysterious! If it is FCPS and you have further questions, I'll to to help if I can.

    I would also suggest joining the FCAG Yahoo group (link can be found at
