Child with low IQ level. How hard is it going to be to get him a good education?

I have a son that will be 15 in 5 days. We just got the results from his testing we had done to get a proper diagnosis. He is adhd (combined types), bipolar (moderate), aspergers, and learning disabilities (not specified). He has been a tough child to raise. But just finding out about the aspergers does give us better insight. His IQ is 81. How hard is it going to be to get him a good education? Will life get easier for him?

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
I understand your concern.
It is difficult to predict the outcome of your child.But as this is a genetic disorder and a mental problem there is little you can do.
He is going to have a Low IQ.
The aim would be to make himself sufficiently so that he can fend for himself.
Continue psychotherapy and discuss with groups dedicated to learning disorders and autism groups.
The path is difficult but nothing is impossible in this world specially with newer advances in gene therapy.
Consult your doctor if the problem aggravates.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
