  1. My DS scored 96 percentile or maybe 97 on cogat. Quantitative was at 98 or 99th percentile. It was done at school. Then, school picked few kids for further testing and psychologist did WISC with him. He scored at overall 99.7 percentile. That was enough to get him into gifted program. I would say, in my son’s case, it was a good indicator for further testing. But, before any testing, I knew he was gifted (intensity, sensitivity, taught self to read, passion into certain subject, etc). Trust your instinct.
  2. Thank you so much! That helps. If I want to find out his FSIQ, i will probably have to take him for a private testing. I am deleting the post, because I think I shouldn’t have posted his score to begin with. Thanks again!
  3. I got the answer now. I realized I was posting my sons scores. I am deleting the contents, just in case. Thank you!
  4. I strongly believe my ds has ADHD, but he masks it pretty well with quirky jokes. He is currently in French immersion program, which offers some degree of enrichment already. (We don’t speak French at home.) I wonder if learning French is more practical and useful than being in a gifted program. This gifted program accepts top 20-25 students and is very competitive to get in. Last year someone who scored 99 percentile didn’t make it. My DS scored pretty high on COGAT, but I don’t know if this will translate into high score on WSIC-V. I Haven’t decided if I want him to go to gifted program. If
  5. My DS is waiting for a gifted testing(WISC-V) in the new year (Feb. 2020). He scored high on COGAT and some gifted behaviour rating scale. Does anyone have an experience with WISC-V? I noticed there are workbooks available everywhere (online and offline). Should I get him a workbook before the test? or perhaps try some sample questions? I asked the psychologist about preps. She said it's her job to do the test and my job is to feed him and let him sleep well. My friend has her both kids in gifted program and she highly recommends to review the workbook beforehand. It is very competitive
  6. My 8 y.o has been playing piano for 4 years. The progress has been slow - painfully slow. He went to Community Centre for 1 year and then Yamaha group lesson for 2 years. At the end of 3 years, I noticed he couldn't read the notes. This was an issue. Because he couldn't read the notes, he needed more guidance from me. I pulled him out and started private lessons. It took him 1 year to get him to read notes (with little guidance). An app called NoteRush was very helpful. Now he is reading notes, he can practice by himself. I sit with him for first 5 min or so and make sure he's playing them cor
  7. Hi there, I don’t know the website you are looking for. I personally use Royal Conservatory music theory books for my 7 year old, along with his piano. It’s been going well. I know there’s a book that’s basically red on the cover and it comes with flash cards and stuff... I thought it starts with L, but can’t remember the name. It’s a popular book..... I found below link helpful, when I am stuck. They have lots of music related websites. Check it out and hope you can find what you are looking for. https://www.mtna.org/MTNA/Learn/Parent_and_Student_Resources/Websites_for
  8. I recently came across Mosdos for my 3rd grader. I looked at the sample and liked the look of it. It's a big investment, esp if you want to get everything. I am debating whether I should get it or not. It was recommended on Timberdoodle. You may want to take a look at it and see if you like it.
  9. I apologize, if the topic is not well related to this forum. I have been thinking a lot about this and thought I would ask for some advice. I have a 7 year old boy who has been playing hockey and soccer, since he was 5. He plays hockey year around and plays soccer in the summer. He's an excellent skater with good speed. His skillset is above average. He seems to like hockey and soccer. He gets up at 6:00 in the morning to go to a session at 7:00 am. He doesn't complain a word about getting up early. He actually looks excited and gets ready to go. The problem comes, when it's game time. He
