Vague answer but--it depends

In some cases, so many years are spent putting academics on the back burner in order to accommodate behaviors, they will have gaps due to that alone.

I have a 16 yo sophomore on my caseload who has an average IQ (FS97-105) depending on the test/year. She has some huge gaps in learning but has spent years in and out of hospitals/residential and in SpEd.

One of the first things we are taught is to reduce frustrations or triggers by lowering the difficulty level or length/depth of the assignments.

So there is no one answer. ED/BD kids are all up and down the IQ scale. But some who are average or higher may still have learning gaps.
