My son started reading alphabets by himself when he was 2 years old, and read book at 4. He played some educational toy and learned alphabets from that without any help from us. He passed accessment test to enter gifted school in first grade with 400 points compare to the requirement for passing is 110. I was so sorry that I did not know anything about gifted kids. My family do not have anyone is like that. Besides he has been taking medication for seizure since he was 5, has many other sickness such aczema, nose bleeding and very weak, small size. We knew that he could not commute 45 minutes each way to gifted school, we moved to better school district but no gifted program for kid. I though it was fine for him, so my son just learned easier in school and relaxed for his health condition. That was big mistake.
He now has most gifted characters such perfectionism, emotional and social behaviors and many more... He cries when he loses a bonus point for the test, he is upset and drops off eveything, does not want to do anything else that day. He is good with math, science ,music but has problem with writing. He refuses learning social study. Again, the school gave him an IQ test when he was in fourth grade, he was 9 years old but his IQ came out about 14 and a half. From that day, the school spychologist told me about gifted kids, then I knew and started reading books for that.
My son now is in six grade. I'm so worried about he gets in trouble with school ecademic. He got low points in state standard test for ELA, but perfect for math in fifth grade. I need someone has problem with gifted kids like that and give me advice what to do the best to help him to learn writing and control his emotional and social problems.
Thank you in advance.

What resources does your school system have? Perhaps a GT teacher, counselor, school psychologist, or social worker could help.

Because he has Doctor's note, they put him in 504 program . However, I dont think that is enough to help him. He needs more challenges in math and science, but he needs help alot with writing. I dont see they help enough. They give him more time for writing, but he always complains he gets stuck. His problem is he can not organize idea to write. Moreover, he has no idea what to write about when he has large vocabulary. I don't know what to do

Contact the person in charge of pupil personnel services. Also contact the school guidance counselor. Stress that you are looking for resources. Depending on the state you are in, your child has MANY rights as a gifted student. Although 504's are not generally a part of the gifted IEP and in some states if you have a 504 that takes priority over the gifted IEP. Do not stop until you hear the same thing at least 3 times from 3 different sources. Check your state's department of education website for gifted education, it is often spelled out as to which services they must provide.

You may need to look at this website for some insights.

Hoagies' Gifted Education Page

Especially look at the characteristics of highly gifted children.

Are you sure it was an IQ test and not an achievement test? I've never heard of an IQ score being scored on an age level. Your IQ score at 10 years old should be the same at 50 years old, all things being equal.

Check out the twice expectional forum at Davidson, all the forums actually, as all gifted kids will experience a lot of these quirks.

you will get the advice of tons of people that have experienced the same issues, and things they've explored.

that is comprehensive evaluation. I had no idea what to do and talked to his neurologist. He wrote up the letter and we had one requesting school committee to perform the test. His IQ is about 135. Some books say that IQ test is not really reliable. Howeevr, since his test result came out so high even he sometimes could not complete school work, they voted not to do anything for him by that time. He still did well in fourth grade and passed state standard test with top ranking, but dropped to too low grade in fifth grade. Thanks for your link since this morning I thought about it.

They did not have any other plan for my son in school. I feel so sorry for him and sent email contact GATS in our county. They had very limit like after school activities only and accepted my son with his test result. However, again 40 minute commuting each way with no bussing. I gave up. Right now they put him in a program that have kids with social behavior, but no challenge or something better for his education. I am so sorry for him and want to do something but don't know what I should do . I'm thinking to take him to see speech therapist or someone like that since he has some problems with expressing his ideas too. I just made appointment with his Neurologist and will ask her what will do to help him.
