Did you know that your child may still be able to participate in Honor’s/gifted and talented or Pre-Ap classes?
Often kids with disabilities get overlooked for these programs because they qualify for Special Ed, however depending on HOW they qualify may make the difference.
In numerous studies, it has shown that students with Dyslexia have average to above average IQ so these classes are a better fit than “traditional classes”.
Students that qualify with Hearing Impairment, Speech Impairment or ADHD may also qualify.
Finally, a large number of students with Autism/Asperger’s Syndrome do have higher IQs and not only benefit from these programs, but thrive.
AND the teacher still has to follow accommodations from their IEPs. For example, spell check, calculators, quiet place to cool off.
