Evaluations: 504 PLAN FAILING, RTI BEFORE ASSESSMENT?

Cindy:  Hi! I am a new advocate and have a student who has a 504 plan. I’m suspicious that he might have Dysgraphia because his writing inside and out is horrendous. I understand RTI has to take place before I request an Special Education assessment. Is there any way around not doing to the RTI and going straight for the assessment. The school has not held up their end of the deal.

Federal guidelines say that an evaluation can be done without RTI being done first. However, schools can & do say no, but the parents are to be given prior written notice of refusal to test. Sometimes this notice is weak, & can be used to convince the school or state that the student should be tested. The state parent training & information project can assist you. http://www.parentcenterhub.org/find-your-center
