If your child's teacher has tried interventions and they have not helped, you should ask for a special education evaluation.
- A special education evaluation is sometimes called a pupil appraisal or 1508 evaluation.
- It's a series of tests to see if your child has a learning disability that prevents them from making progress in school. If they do, they will qualify for special education services.
- This means you will create an Individualized Education Program (IEP) to describe the services and special instruction that the school will give to your child.
