My son is in the first grade. He does all his homework perfectly without my help. He can read chapter books in just two- three days ( for example he read Diary of a Whimpy kid in two days). He is in the hardest spelling group there is and every week he gets 103% with out studying. Is this gifted? The only complaint that I have is that his Hand writing is terrible. He has no behavior problems, he is very social, and creative. He has no problems like ADD or anything like that, Not that I'm saying that That is a problem. I have just heard of a lot of gifted kids that have been diagnosed with conditions like this.Do i ask the school what they think or will I look like I am pushing my son?
Moms of certfied gifted children, did the school tell you to get tested or did you ask for the test? I don't want to push my son but I don't want him to be bored or lose interest in school if he isn't challanged. All advice welcome.
