MODERATE COGNITIVE DISABILITY (ECS: Code 30; Grades 1–12: Code 52)
A student/ECS child identified as having a moderate cognitive disability should have:
an intelligence quotient (IQ) in the range of approximately 30 to 50 ± 5 as measured on an individual intelligence test,
an adaptive behaviour score equivalent to the moderately delayed level on an adaptive behaviour scale such as AAMR Adaptive Behaviour Scale – School: Second Edition (ABS-S:2) or Vineland Adaptive Behaviour Scale, and
programming that reflects significant modifications to basic curriculum and instruction in literacy, numeracy and living/vocational skills.
