Misidentificatons: The IQ-Achievement Discrepancy Model
- one of the oldest methods used to diagnose students
- compares:
general intelligence tests (like IQ tests) and achievement tests
- students who score at least 30 points higher on their intelligence test are considered to have an learning disability
(Dyer, 2014)
Preventing misdiagnosis: Response to Intervention (RTI)
Schools can:
- identify students who struggle

- monitor the progress of the students
- help students through the use of interventions
- adjust the interventions to meet students' needs
(Response To Intervention, n.d.)
Shift your focus to something you like. Go to your happy place!
Talk to your teacher or a trusted adult about it.
Write your feelings away! Keep a notebook or journal where you can write down your feelings when you don't feel like talking to others.
Ask to be removed from the situation. For example, take a walk to get a drink of water.
(Roua, 2010)
Keep a stress ball in your backpack or pencil box.
Take deep breaths and count to 10. This will help get oxygen to your brain and help you think more clearly!
