Requesting a Special Education Evaluation and What Happens Next

A- A+

(aired October 19, 2011)

Summary: This webinar explains how to request an education evaluation from the public school system when a child is suspected of having a disability that is impacting or could impact their education. It discusses what happens after the request, including what the evaluation will look like, how the results are shared and used to make decisions about a child's educational program, and what happens if you disagree with the results.

Transition to early childhood special education is also discussed for families that have children transitioning from First Steps services to preschool through the public school.
