"many kids with "Mild Intellectual Delay" (most kids with DS included) benefit greatly from regular classroom instruction - especially if a little extra help is forthcoming from an EA"

Very true. Unfortunately, the public board is nowhere near meeting the need for EAs... and if the only reasons for an EA are the educational needs of the child, it is almost certain you will not get one (at least in the lower city; other areas seem to get higher EA allocations). Only if you can show genuine needs related to safety - i.e. only if the board sees potential legal liability - will you be likely to get EA assistance for a child who needs one for educational reasons.
