In the US at least, there are special ed classrooms at regular schools for kids in the normal range of intelligence who have other learning disabilities like severe ADHD and dyslexia, for example, and the classes are for kids that are falling behind in a regular class.

So if his condition was so horrible, then why wasn't it readily apparent at the donation center? What if he had never been diagnosed? In what way is this basically different from women getting pregnant from the local alcoholic down at the bar, having children who are more likely to do the same? It'...

My concern is that I have a 6 year old son that is beginning to suffer from his Dad's behaviors. Just recently his Dad publicly trampled his little baseball j...

I can totally appreciate what you are saying, but don't know how appropriate it is to post an argument you are having with someone in private emails. And including their name. However, that being said, you bring up a super good point. Extremists in any direction are doing a big disservice to the ca...
