Ok, the "holy crap" is totally positive but crap!!!
I met with Robbie's teacher and the school psychologist for all of the testing results.
Here are the results:
Full Scale IQ - 136!!!!!! (99th percentile) - mine is 132 and Sean's 128. We knew he was smart but dang!!!
Verbal comprehension - 148 (99.9 %)!!!!!
Perceptional Reasoning - 134 - (99%)
Working memory - 111 (77%)
Processing speed - 106 (66%) - he distracts himself with talking out loud
(the test for those who care was the WISC-IV)
Then there were the reading tests.... CRAP!!!!!
Remember, Robbie had been in grade 2 for one month at the time of testing...
reading comprehension - grade equivalent - 6.6, >99%
reading decoding - ge: 4.8, 98%
spelling - ge: 4.2, 96%
written language - ge: 87%
math computation - ge - 3.4, 98%
math problem solving - ge: 4.3, 97%
so his reading stuff falls mostly in grade 3-4 levels with comprehension at halfway through 6th grade!!!!
Some of the comments that Robbie said during testing (and were including in the reports)
-favourite subjects - science and math, does not like gym because "I like to use my brain and gym does not have much brain stuff"
-likes school, science "all the experiments", reading "all the words and stuff it can teach me"
-math can be occasionally difficult "what the attributes are for some patterns" (what 7 year old uses words like attributes :confused:)
-does not have homework often as he gets everything done in class, except home reading and home spelling practice (which to be honest we do not do a lot of as he always knows the spelling words so well).
There was a comment that during the grade 5 level reading he only scored 50% in retelling the passage. Considering that is 3 grades above grade level I am not concerned!
So, Robbie has an appointment with his therapist on Thursday so we will give them a copy of the report and have a copy for our family doctor. The school thinks that everything considered that CASA (where he sees the therapist and psychiatrist) will be able to deal with if he needs OT or not for fine motor delay.
We have an extremely smart cookie on our hands!
Also, the psychiatrist is putting him on a very low dose of liquid prozac. He said it was very good that we took him off the other medication when we did.
