Tami:  My son has Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum, yet functions well (IQ of 73). His placement is in a high school classroom for students with cognitive impairments. He sees himself as not “being like them.” He has a strong desire to learn about history. In previous years he has taken history classes in the general education setting with accommodations. During that semester he was also in two other resource classes and two classes within the CI classroom. Now the administration says that it’s considered duel enrolled and that services cannot provided that way. They also stated that if he his not in the CI classroom more it can effect his social security and guardianship. Is any of this correct?
