Sherry:  I am an Educational Diagnostician. Approximately 14 years ago, while employed by a Texas ISD sp ed cooperative, a soon-to-be 3 year old with an obvious cognitive and physical handicapping condition was referred by his parent 3 weeks prior to the 1st day of school. The Sp Ed Director provided me with some legal data indicating such a child may be admitted to the PPCD program and assessment conducted during the prescribed school day.
I had a similar situation this past summer break. Child diagnosed with TBI, non-ambulatory, non-verbal, etc. Where can I locate any verbiage pertaining to a case such as this?

I am not aware of any TX rules that allow this. The IDEA rules on REED could be used, “Review of existing evaluation data. As part of an initial evaluation (if appropriate) and as part of any reevaluation… the IEP Team and other qualified professionals , .. (2) On the basis of that review, and input form the child’s parents identify what additional data, if any, are needed to determine” eligibility. 300.305(a)
