IEE & School Services
Subject to certain conditions, when a parent disagrees with a child’s evaluation obtained by a public agency, the School District must pay for an Independent Educational Evaluation (IEE).
If your child has already received an evaluation you disagree with, or if you believe that is likely to occur in the future, request a consultation. We can provide advice about the process and what to expect.
Remember, often the school board should be paying for your IEE if they have already performed a separate evaluation that you are seeking a second opinion about. Talk to us to find out more; the initial call is free.
Our IEE evaluations are designed to identify all of your child’s disabilities and/or educational needs. The purpose of the evaluation is to ascertain how a disability, such as a learning disorder, is interfering with a child’s education and recommend personalized, targeted accommodations to ensure that your child can appropriately access the school curriculum and be afforded a fair chance at a quality education.
Our IEEs include:
- Initial meeting and interview with parents and child
- Full review of medical and academic history
- School observation
- Phone consultations with professional working with student (e.g., teachers).
- 5-10 hours of testing
- Achievement and neurocognitive testing
- Full educational report, including a comprehensive list of personalized and targetted recommendations for accommodations and treatment.
- Feedback session with parents and child to go over testing results and recommendations.
- IEP and school meeting attendance, as required
