According to the school, he is in the average range (47%) for IQ (or Full Scale IQ, whatever that is), the 9th percentile for processing speed, third grade level for reading, seventh grade level for spelling and second grade level for math. The assessment also noted problems with coordination and social pragmatics.
That's kind of it in a nutshell. He's a very uneven kiddo; that's what the metrics show and that's really how he presents. Uneven. I felt a tremendous amount of validation reading his evaluation because I've always suspected his slow processing speed was something that separated him from both his typical and atypical peers. And it is. He's not unintelligent. On the contrary. It just takes him longer to process things.
He qualifies for speech (pull out), occupational therapy (in class), adaptive physical education (pull out), social group and placement in a class with an aide.
This post isn't laced with the emotion of earlier posts, but there's a good reason for that. I'm no longer on that emotional rollercoaster. I have challenges ahead to be sure. But I've learned to take things as they come now.
