ebunny Posted February 1, 2012 Share Posted February 1, 2012 We met an 'education consultant' yesterday to help us chart out some sort of a direction for DD (Homeschooling isn't recognized legally in India). Well, this lady is highly qualified and very experienced in her field. After she saw DD's test results, she was...for a lack of a better word..flippant. She said that DD scored "bright-normal" in the performance IQ (Overall IQ assessment is-very superior) and that there are many kids like DD who hit IQ test ceilings. Although she acknowledged that DD was progressing excellently at home, but said that we would have had the same degree of sucess with a bright child and DD's rapid advance in academia is not conclusive proof of her intellectual abilities. And her IQ levels doesn't necessitate pulling her out of school and homeschooling her. :confused: IOW, she implied that we probably were pushing DD to achieve certain milestones.:001_huh: And that DD might have some underlying unaddressed behavioral issues going on (because she hates school) .:confused: Feel totally discouraged..
