Moving to a different country is not a trivial task. I'd spend more
time investigating Norway and Sweden educational possibilities. It may
only mean moving nearer a better school in Norway. You just need to
find it.

Remember - you are not alone. There must be hundreds (at least) gifted
children in Norway /Sweden.
Use the web and contacts to find out what other parents are doing, -
clubs, societies, special schools, advanced courses, etc.

Best wishes, BillK
