Hi,

Please could I tap into the wealth of knowledge on this site. Is there ever a case to go for a review when a child has only recently been diagnosed with a learning disability, but equally scores very highly in some area of the wisc v ( top 0.1 %, top 3% top 1%etc).

Kind regards

Welcome! :)

A recent diagnosis could well be an extenuating circumstance, but a review or appeal panel would still need sufficient evidence of grammar school ability.

A high individual score in, say, verbal comprehension might help show that a low VR result in the transfer test was not a fair reflection of verbal ability.

I'd also look at the FSIQ to see what it says about overall ability.
(Sometimes the FSIQ isn't calculated if it would be distorted by erratic individual results in working memory or processing speed.)

It rather depends on the rest of the evidence (e.g. someone with a transfer test score of 120 is going to be in a stronger position than someone with a score of 100).
