Part 4 - Understand the Requirements of an Evaluation for a Suspected Disability

ASSESSMENT IN SPECIAL EDUCATION SERIES

Introduction

A variety of assessment tools and strategies are used to gather relevant functional, academic and developmental information about the child, including information provided by the parent. This information will be used to determine whether the child has a disability, the child's present levels of academic achievement and functional performance, and if eligible for special education and related services, the content of the child's IEP. This part of the Assessment in Special Education Series will assist you in understanding these requirements.
