I am worried that I could be borderline mentally retarded because when I was 17 years old, I took an I.Q. test that qualified me for special eductation classes after it was discovered that I had a learning disability in math. My overall I.Q. score was 89, which is very low, but is that considered borderline intellectual functioning? Or a very mild degree of mental retardation? The test I took, the Weschler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS), said that the standard deviation for an average I.Q. was between 85-115. But from what I have read and heard, 89 is considerably below average intelligence. I have also read that borderline mental retardation is defined as having an I.Q. between 75-86.] Could I really be mentally retarded to some degree? Will I have great difficulty in college and working because of my mental delay?
