    I want an independent assessment because some of the tests would be invalid if they are given too close together (i.e. less than a year apart). Something about the subject being able to remember the line of questioning and so their answers would be biased...

    Anyone been told this before?

    Yes, some tests would be invalid and if you are working with a reputable neuropsychologist it would usually be preferable to go through them rather than school.

    Check on the sped board to see if any problems could arise from delaying the school assessment (ie timing). I was at a child study meeting with a friend and when she said she had a neuro evaluation scheduled what the district did was leave the student in his place in line for testing while they awaited results.
