How many times have you as a special needs person sat in the team of therapist, counselors and doctor’s office waiting to be given an IQ test? Do you know what it measured? Did it really measure how intelligent you really are? How many times did you understand the question given by the administrator, but were unable to respond because of the way they verbally communicated it to you? Did you realize it after the fact? Was that the reason why you didn’t know what they were saying and didn’t respond correctly?
That is when we find out the truth about these tests! And that is when we personally find out what we are made of. That is when we know if we are going to fight an advance with great effort taking ricks to better ourselves, or sit back on our laurels and watch “The Wheel of Fortune.”
