    We have 3 families with similar aged boys at the hour away mark, that we've gotten to know through YSP. My son "hit it off" with one a pair of brothers, and it's been amazing for me to see him interact with them in a totally different way than he interacts with me, or his cousins, or his other fiends.

    The "Density" varies by area. But we have also learned about certain local events, such as MIT Splash, Beyond IQ Conference, and the Talent Search activities through YSP parents. Meeting Dottie and her son in real life has been so important, because as you know, my son's "adaptive" behaviors in the past have had us all wondering "what's wrong with him?" Dottie can vouch that he spends long hours at a time acting like a delightful young young man. When we were first in the YSP, I was desperate enough to drive to gatherings 6 hours away, just for my son to breath the same air as other YS kids. I am happy to report that I am much less desperate now, and have even turned down 3 hour trips.

    Smiles,
    Trinity

    Hi,

    It's Questions with questions again. I'm confused (sorry, Confused). I've been reading a lot of the other posts here and then I went back to look at the YSP criteria, and I'm not sure what Total Language is on the WIAT-II. Our son's substests were Reading Composite, Math Comp., Written Language Comp. and Oral Language Comp. Which one is the Total Language referenced on the YSP website? Now I"m wondering if I misread the qualifications - oral language is our child's strength - he has a fine motor delay and resultant writing issues. Is oral language the Total Language they're referring to? Of course, I could just call and ask... but you all seem so nice!

    I do like this forum. You are ALL so nice! In any event, thanks, Dottie - if it's oral language we're okay, as he has qualifying scores with the composite and one subtest, as well as the VCI on the WISC-IV. Now I'll have to go over to Test Discrepancy and see what you wrote...

    Thanks, everyone - for the info and the laughs.

    I'm glad you feel just like I do about finding this forum, questions! It has been so incredible for me to be able to talk about my dd like this. The women here (are there any men that post? wink ) are so helpful and encouraging. Feels like home!

    Well, I feel like I should change my name - maybe to "Answers?" or how about "Bossy?" Maybe "UnSpeller" would be better!

    You all don't know how many "Broadway Musicals" I've made up in my mind while waiting for the traffic to clear, about my life with you all in the Gifted Liberation Movement. I never remember them the next day. Now that we have Confused, Questions, and Incognito I feel more like I'm living "A Chourus Line" than ever before!!!
