OBTAINING EDUCATION EVALUATIONS FOR AGES 3 & OLDER
A medical/clinical evaluation does not necessarily qualify a child for special educational services. For this, an educational evaluation is needed.
Contact your local school district special education office in writing to request an initial Multi-Factored Evaluation (MFE). Districts are required by law to respond within 30 days.
You will be asked to attend a meeting to plan the evaluation if the district agrees to evaluate your child. Parents should request assessments in all of the following areas: communication, social, motor, sensory, emotional, behavioral, functional and academic performance.
