My son was IQ of 125 on WISCIII at age 9 1/2 but his EQ? probably very very low. He maxes out those standardized tests alot of the time, or scores extremely high in the 95-99%tile. one time he got to take it alone in a room by himself cause he was so distracting with his hyperactivity to others. When he did it alone in a room, He got every single answer right and this is supposed to be one of the hardest tests in the nation as far as standardized testing, they give it every couple of years in a state that is highly recognized for academics and its public education. I think others might distract him, he really had no motivation to do stuff he is not interested in. I've read alot about mania and creative genius, he does stuff like plays his musical instrument when he is agitated or manic. I am not sure if homeschooling would help or hurt. He needs socialization, but cant seem to get along , but he really wants to be around kids and make friends, but his behavior limits that for him. at the same time, he has had some awful teachers who were borderline abusive towards him in their reactions to his "excessive movement" where they would do things leave him in the hallway the entire day and embarrass him in front of peers by tossing him out and throwing all his stuff at him, this has caused him have so many problems. He does great with some teachers, but he is basically just a kid who doesnt like for people to treat him bad and when they do look out his defense mechanisms come up quickly. I always see those bumper stickers "mean people suck" I couldnt agree more.
I'll never forget what the one teacher said to me, who sat with him while he took a test alone. they told me, "He answered the questions quicker than I could as an adult and a teacher, and they were all correct answers, but even if he is a genius, he has to comply and not be distracting and disruptive" I remember telling his therapist this and the therapist said "yes they just want him zombified. drugged and him not to be himself and just sit there and shut up, basically brain dead, how convenient for them"

Public schools are wonderful arent they? :)

I guess as him mom I really hope a day comes when he is so successful (I KNOW THIS WILL HAPPEN!) and the one time where i will tolerate an insult would be when he is somebody "important" in their eyes( he already is in my eyes!) and some magazine of tv station will quote him and he will say "this is to a group of some of my past public school teachers... YOU really bite! :)" sorry
