Those are the words the psychological examiner started our meeting to discuss my wiggly little 6 year olds IQ and learning disability testing.
She followed with, “B is a very bright child who is considered “gifted” (insert mommy tears). More specifically, B is a gifted child who also has ADHD and executive functioning deficits.
After going over every detail of the test included how he acted etc she goes on to tell me that he is going to be fine and that he would excel in adulthood. My goal was to do whatever needed to get him through school.
I got this!
Maybe his IQ will bump closer to Einstein’s 😉.
I really just wanted to share this because my little boy, who gets in so much trouble, weekly, at school….my little B who no one says anything good about, is gifted .
He will do extrodinary things!
I am so proud of this mom win! I’m so proud of me knowing there was something wrong, that my boy was smart and not purposely a trouble maker. I’m so happy I caught this before his deficits stand out more than his intellect and his behavior gets him labeled a “bad kid” which would distroy his self esteem and lesson his chance to succeed. I’m so excited that now I will be his strongest advocate and I know how good at am at fighting for my children. In the end he will move mountains!
That made my day :).
