Jill:  Is there a time limit on when you can disagree with an evaluation done by the school for the purpose of requesting an IEE? There hasn’t been another evaluation done since the one I disagree with.

We have typically requested an outside evaluation after the school has done their evaluation and if we don’t agree with it. If the school’s evaluation was within the last year I think you can request an outside evaluation however once you send the letter to the school requesting this they may want to re-test your child again if it has been a long time. Make sure you sign their consent form so that they get it done in 60 days. Once you get the results you may disagree and request the outside eval at the school’s expense. I know it means waiting but there may be no other way.

Federal law does not address a timeline, but state law or district policy may. Your state parent training & information center can assist you with this situation. http://www.parentcenterhub.org/find-your-center/
