I am wondering if I should get my son to do a Talent Search Test. I honestly know very little about the world we now find ourselves in. I grew up never having my intelligence enhanced by anything outside of of my very mediocre public school. DS is currently (age wise) 2nd grade. I am wondering what benefits he would get from talent search testing. I know it could lead to him being able to attend CTY, but if we do not plan on doing that this summer is there any other reason to have him test? Also it said I have to get an eligibility number from John Hopkins before I can sign up to have him test. If we do that and then decide against doing the camp (there isn't one anywhere near us and with his age being only day camps it would mean a huge commitment of one or more of us going with him and hanging out while he is in camp all day) is there a problem with that?
Thanks in advance! I seriously feel I need someone to schedule our life for us most of the time.
