Independent Educational Evaluation
An Independent Educational Evaluation is like getting a second opinion from a different doctor. The difference is that it occurs in the school system. A related service provider who is not employed by the school district is hired to complete a series of assessments on a student. The series of assessments need to be comprehensive to encompass all areas of the service provider’s domain. We complete a series of occupational therapy assessments to complete a comprehensive evaluation across the domains of occupational therapy practice with the ultimate goal of a child graduating from high school to be ready for adulthood. These disagreements between the parents and the school district lead to difficult situations and excessive stress for all parties involved. It prevents the ability for the child to receive a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) that is mandated by the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act (IDEA) of 2004 §34 CFR 300.502.
These evaluations are limited to Eastern Pennsylvania.
