My son's teacher sent me a form to fill out and schedule a meeting with her and the principal for my son to have an iep. He has severe ADHD... She thought he could benefit from more 1 on 1.


Then the next day she sends me a form for him to be tested for the gifted and talented enrichment program?

They can be both. Be thankful his teacher wants him to reach his full potential.

Will that class not move more quickly?? He's a real hands on learner

sounds to me like you have a teacher trying to find the best educational solution for your child. he can be both and she sees it.

I'm not upset I just assumed that class would more more quickly than the one he's already in.

My daughter has ADHD, a mood disorder and SPD and also has a gifted EP and we will probably eventually get her a 504 plan.

You can be adhd and gifted, adhd doesn't mean the kid is stupid.

Just because he has adhd and may do better 1 on 1 doesn't mean he is not gifted! Just means he has trouble in group settings. GT is also mostly 1 on 1 and computer learning.
