Intellectual Disabilities


The Title 5 definition of Intellectual Disability is significant limitations both in intellectual functioning and in adaptive behavior that affect and limit the student's ability to access the educational process.


After a students' general ability has been verified and related educational limitations identified, a certificated DSS staff member will determine whether a student is "otherwise qualified" to receive services from DSS. Once a determination is made, the DSS staff member may recommend services on or off campus, which have a reasonable chance of enhancing the students' goal attainment.
