"You can't expect them to revise anything-they're approaching children when they hold an intellectual disability"
every childs level of mental dissability is different, some will never swot much and some can learn to play extraordinary music basically by hearing it but they cant tie their shoes. not a soul is equal to another. each have to take small steps to find out where on earth their strengths are.
Of course it depends on the disability! But the problem here is that children move on to the subsequent stage of development. People who are mentally retarded are approaching frozen children, intellectually that is. Physically, it's an entirely different story. Of course, some can cram life skills.
