Does anyone have a child with a GIEP? If so, how did you get it and is your child being challenged?
I suppose it depends where you are in the world. Your best bet is probably to contact your local MENSA club. I think this is worldwide and is for people with a high IQ. There is an international version of Mensa. Some of those people may have or know of Gifted children. I believe some Mensa clubs may also hold extra curricular activities for Gifted children and some of the members may know how you can access a Gifted child program in your particular area.
My son has Autism as you know. He was tested and his IQ was off the charts.
My situation is probably totally different than yours. The school almost couldn't offer him special needs services because his IQ was so high. He tested 19 points higher in one area than the average.
There were a lot of forms. Tedious meetings. I went straight to the Board of Ed. But I had diagnosis in place before I did so. They come to the table with a budget. They don't like doing it unless they have to just to let you know! LOL
However, here at the public schools, they have started something new and I love it. They have individual groups. There's no more putting a child in a class with 30 others and having them do the same thing. If the child is ahead, he goes in to a group with the advanced. If the child is behind, he goes in to a group with the children who are behind. It works out really well. I think it's a great balance from what I have observed.
The other thing is if the school won't help, here we have advocates in our state that advocate for the child. I don't know what your state offers. At one point, we were looking into getting a professional, private, opinion, and they only take cases referred to by the school, so that turned out to go nowhere.
Crafty- I wish we lived closer and were able to chat about this, I have a lot of questions for you. I'm getting fed up with my sons school (we pay a lot for) and was looking into public school gifted options. He's in K and said no gifted until grade2

Have you, or anyone you know of, ever had a close encounter? When did it take place? Were there any drugs involved? Did you tell the authorities? What race of aliens were involved? Was the experience angelic or demonic in nature? Did the ones who made contact with you seem good or evil? Did you...

I have a question. Are their parents who watch what their children are doing while outside? Does anyone at least check-up on them every so often? I am a busy mom, I work full time and when I get home I am exhausted. The last thing I want to do is run outside evry few minutes checking on my son, but...
