Hi I was reading your story and wanted to tell you about my experience with my five year old son.

He started reading when he was three when he started kindergarten his teacher recommended that he be tested for gifted.

My son was tested and his IQ is 135. Let me stop and say GOD is good. he was then sent to gifted classes three times a week.

Because the school does not have a full magnet program.

So at the end of my the the school year I was contacted by the school

Board to discuss my sons IQ scores and SAT scores .my son scored a 100% on his SAT in kindergarten.

So I was told to take my son out of public school and enroll him in a full magnet school.

I applied and he was accepted into North Dade Center for Modern Languge. Only of the top magnet schools in the nation .

So first enroll him in an all magnet school

Also look into the Mensa Society your sons test score qualify for him to be accepted .

I can answer most questions on parenting gifted children, from infants on. Questions can be about parenting, advocacy, and support and I can provide suggestions for toys and books gifted children love. I can even help you determine whether your child is gifted or bright, and I can point you to more information you might need. I can answer some questions about programs for gifted children, but can`t help much with information on colleges. Visitors wanting to know if their children are gifted might want to read the article "Is My Child Gifted?" before asking a question.
