Could a person make graduate from high school with mental retardation, without it ever being detected?
And then there’s special ed in schools. It is so corrupt. The schools fight to no end with parents because they don’t want to help the children.
So YES a child CAN go all thru school without getting help for this problem and any other learning problem.
So all is all it would be quite hard to be in school without seeing that the student has a disabillity.
With the current requirements to meet federal high-stakes testing standards, I feel fewer students will go unidentified because teachers, schools and administrations are being held accountable for their students’ performances (The one good thing about “No Child Left Behind”) and will loose funding as well as the possibility of being shut down.
My question to this is where was the parents? Why was the parent/s not more actively involved to ensure their child’s academic and social needs were being met?
If you or someone you know made it through high school, graduated then take pride in that accomplishment. I work with students who will be lucky to live till graduation and have disabilities that make the simplest tasks impossible to accomplish without help.
generally a person with a low IQ may have the most trouble in understanding consequences and accepting responsibility. this person will also seem to “learn slow” or catch on at a slower pace than other students. but if the student is motivated and maintains an average number of passing grades, the student may never be referred to special education. if the student is not referred, there will be no testing… no learning abilities, no psychological tests, and no IQ tests. this person could graduate high school and get a job and never know he or she has mental retardation.
WIth early identification and support, kids who used to be labeled as MR get support and education almost right after they are born. Most of these kids have supported education, IEPS, and learn and grow up with labels that focus on their abilities and positives.
If he/she has a learning disability and act, then I say Maybe….if there are not ANY obvious physical issues, he/she has someone with them to take notes, can memorize and take exams without issues, and complete assignments.
