I was in Special-Education

by Mr. Special

I was in Special-Education for most of my middle and high-school years; though I did not graduate from that class. Never the less I was in Special-Ed starting my 7th grade year where it was mandated that I take a test to see if I was or was not at the same level as my peers. Well I ended up failing the test and being placed in Special-Education. In my 10th year as a Sophomore I was mandated to take an I.Q. test, because I was at the age of 17. I scored a 127 which I was told was remarkable above average, thus leading into more testing for me. It was concluded that I suffer from some sort of learning disability, making it hard for me to simple mathematics with out any aid; making it possible for me to compute Algebraic procedures in my head using aid for only the simple adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. For my Language arts I scored remarkably high in reading comprehension, but scored low in spelling, and above average in speed. My vocabulary known was estimated between 78-thousand and 90 thousand, which is to my understanding, is an incredible amount of words to know. Over all scores showed similar readings in all tested sections. The Doctor who had conducted the testing recommended me to be lifted from Special-Education and be placed in a work alone program. He had also suggested that I get further testing done to discover what exactly my learning disability was, so I could reach my fullest potential.

I ended up in the exact situation you did. My third grad teacher determined I was slow, was tested, found to have an IQ of 128 only to be put in 'slow' classes anyways by a school system that had no idea what to do with a child with a learning disability.

It was eventually determined that I had medical dyslexia (an inner ear imbalance) and was put on motion medication and Ritalin so I could concentrate. My personality and achievement level went through the roof and graduated high school with honors, something no one suspected I was capable of.

Don't let a label convince you that you can't do it. I still have trouble with spelling and higher math but otherwise am a useful productive member of society (a couple of years ago, I retested and my IQ, now no longer limited by my disability, had gone up to 134 regardless of my more advanced age)

If you are in the habit of spelling phonetically when you can't spell conventionally and occasionally have been known to transpose numbers, have yourself tested for dyslexia, it is a medical problem not a learning disability regardless of some 'expert' opinions and can be successfully treated.

What do I do for a living? I work in aeronautic engineering. I check other people's work for mistakes, and I'm very good at it.

Good fortune in all that you do. Believe in yourself. Thomas Edison and Albert Einstein were both dyslexic. You may be in good company.

Is there irony in having to pass a spelling test to comment on an IQ test?
