IQ Tests for 4 year olds?

My (4 yr old) godson's IQ was tested recently and he scored a 62. His hearing is fine and they said he also has ADHD and some sort of "defiant disorder" (can't remember the exact phrase). Has anyone else had their child's IQ tested at a young age and is this normal? I'm worried that he might be being diagnosed with things that he is too young to really be tested for, and his parents are as confused as I am. Any thoughts?

  • My mom is a teach and she says that they don't give children IQ tests until they are at least in second grade because they are in conclusive.
    I would agree with your instincts that a second opinion is a good idea.
