And Miles to Go...: State SLD Requirements and Authoritative Recommendations - National Reserch Cneter on Learning Disabilites Full Report, Discussion of Indentification of Specific Learning Disabilites "Authoritative groups have rejected the IQ-achievement discrepancy classification method due to reliability and validity issues (e.g., LD Roundtable, 2002). Most important, this method often delays SLD classification until 3rd or 4th grade when academic achievement problems are more difficult to resolve successfully (Fletcher, et al., 2002). These are fatal flaws. The most salient of these flaws is treatment validity. Few argue currently that the IQ-achievement discrepancy is related to decisions about intervention methods or goals. Virtually no one claims at this time, at least with empirical support, that IQ-achievement discrepancy is related to the results of interventions"
