    We are in Washington state. My son had an iq test as part of his assessment for adhd. The medical records department is insisting that they cannot legally give us the data, instead the two sentences in the summary of all the testing is all they can give us. This seems incredibly wrong. Does anyone have information regarding where I can start researching this topic?
    This place has been incredibly hard and awful to work without throughout this whole process.
    I'm also wondering how valid the information would be since they said they administered the wisc - v to him when he was 5 yrs, 5 months.

    Welcome, Zylona!

    If I am understanding correctly, your child had a WISC-V administered at age five as part of a medical evaluation. In this case, I would be in agreement with their decision to withhold the scores, since, as you accurately note, he was outside of the age norms at the time, so those scaled and standard scores are not valid, and cannot be responsibly reported. They can reasonably conclude that he is at least age-appropriate in ability (if the nominal standard scores are at least average), but not to what degree. Unfortunately, this has also spoiled future administrations of the WISC-V for the next 24 months.
