Developmentally Delayed Learners


 The Title 5 definition of Developmentally Delayed Learner is a student who exhibits the following: (a) Below average intellectual functioning; and (b) Potential for measurable achievement in instructional and employment settings.


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.
