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.
