I've posted a few time about my son Micah. This however is about my daughter. I recently had her tested because I felt she was struggling in school and behind her peers. My youngest son has a IEP for speech, only.
My daughter is 12 yr old (dec 19th) and in the 6th grade.
Her results were.
Reading Comp ~ 11th grade 7 month
Written Expresseion ~ 12 grade 11 month (that's almost college leve, right?)
Here is where I'm confused. Her math scores all came back at below grade level the lowest score coming in at 4th grade 3rd month. The highest score coming back at 5th grade 6th month.
Does that make her gifted? The "weird" part for me is that I had her tested because I felt her reading and comp was below grade level and she was struggling because of it. Now I wonder how much of that was because she compares herself to Micah, who is highly gifted? Ryan, my daughter, is very analytical. Her vocab is also above her peers and always has been. As a parent I thought most of that was due to her brother and his level. Now I wonder how much of that is she is highly gifted herself but held back due to her brother and his advanced level?
