:help: In my graduate class (special education) we have to create a case study on a student with an intellectual disability or a developmental delay. The student I am "creating" has a mild intellectual disability due to epileptic seizures. I am using the following website. We had to choose a cause for the ID. http://www.epilepsyfoundation.org/livingwithepilepsy/educators/index.cfm Here is what I have on my student. She is a twin, has developed normally, began having seizures in first grade. She is now in third grade and has a mild ID (IQ 70). I did learn from the educators section referenced above that a very small percentage of those with epilepsy do have an ID of 70 or lower. My question, for those who are more experienced with is it reasonably realistic that this student was without seizures until about 6 or 7 years old and then the seizures caused an intellectual disability? My gut tells me it is. If I'm way off base please let me know. (I had a blinding migraine at the time I wrote the case study, and based it off a few children and adults I have met with epilepsy--most I have met seem to have a average intelligence, I did not test them). Would it be more reasonable to assume my student had seizures prior to 6/7 years old that were few or unnoticed? Is is common for a student with epilepsy to use a helmet? A student at the school I worked at had a helmet, she wore it most of the time she was out of her classroom. She did not need the helmet two years prior. I do have the student with the helmet outside her special and general education classroom. She is about 70/30 special and general ed for her LRE. I hope this is at least somewhat clear. Sorry it is so long. Thank you for your patience and help.
