The trouble is that testing for giftedness before 3rd grade is notoriously unreliable. I suspect that's why you're being brushed off on this. Some kids are just early bloomers on reading, some are late bloomers and it doesn't necessarily correlate with giftedness. :-/ Sorry I don't really have more for you than that. My answer was to homeschool my kid, which is not what most people want to do.
