✓ What is the purpose of each evaluation? Why is it being given?
✓ What areas will be evaluated? What information will be gained?
✓ What specific tests or portions of tests will be used and why?
✓ Whether you, as parents, or the district initiates an evaluation, be familiar with the qualifications of the evaluator. Get recommendations from people you respect before deciding whom to use.
✓ Does the evaluation need to be modified/adapted to compensate for your child’s suspected disability?
✓ Are these evaluations administered in a language and form most likely to yield accurate information on what the child knows and can do academically, developmentally and functionally?
