I was viewing some posts and came across a post that mentioned MID (mild intellectual disability) what is the standards for this? I havent even heard of it? The reason I ask is that my 12 year old son has been on an IEP since he was in preschool, first for speech issues and he just always had a hard time learning and was behind...he took kindergarten twice and is still testing well below where he should be. Well this year in sixth grade, he has been taken off the IEP and they suggested a 504 plan because as they said, he has a low IQ and therefore will always function below level. I stated i dont see how this is acceptable but havent had anything happen since so now he sits and falls farther and farther behind? i read up on it what i could but any info from any of you is greatly appreciated! Thank you!!!
