How can my disabled grandson get the services and education he needs?

Memphis, TN |

My 26 year old grandson was diagnosed during very early childhood with the diagnoses listed above. He was denied admission to the school for the deaf and denied getting a cochlear implant. The reason given for both denials was that he was too intellectually challenged to benefit from the services. Recently I had a need for documentation of his present condition. I asked his PCP to write that. She wrote among other things, "Mr. XXXXX has MODERATE MENTAL RETARDATION. Note she said moderate not profound. Is there any help for him?
