My son six year old son recently had his IQ tested via the WISC IV and his full scale IQ is141 with his general ability index at 146 due to a much lower processing speed score (121). Did anyone else experience this with their kids, and is a slower processing time a source of frustration for your children? My son will flip out if he cannot instantly jam out an answer in his workbook- claiming he doesn't understand when I know he does, but he needs to take things more slowly.
I'm also curious if anyone has any experience with gifted magnet schools - aside from his behavior asynchronicity, we had the IQ test because we are considering putting him on a waitlist for a public magnet school in our area specifically for gifted elementary students - his private school is excellent but quite expensive. I'm nervous about upsetting his apple cart and moving schools- he's an anxious, intense child with some minor social awkwardness. Can't decide if an entire school of gifted children would be a blessing or a disaster for him.
Thanks for your input.
