To make wise decisions about your child's special education program, you need accurate information about your child's disability, strengths, weaknesses, and needs.
This information is available from tests and evaluations of your child.
The federal law about evaluations is in 20 U.S.C. 1414(a) (b) and (c).
You also need to know your state's rules and laws about the requirements for testing children with special educational needs.
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn about the importance of evaluation and assessment, your right to request an evaluation, and the responsibility the school has to evaluate your child.
Please don't hesitate to forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.
