When the ed spec at sd said they needed to do a comprehensive evaluation on difficult child, I wrote a letter stating that their proposed educational test, "a memory" test, and interviews, reviews, were not sufficient to assess ALL areas of difficult child's suspected disability, which is required by state regs. They had been given a copy of a recent letter from psychiatrist stating difficult child's Bipolar diagnosis. I said that due to his diagnosis and areas of difficulties that showed up on previous neuropsychologist testing, they needed to test attention, inhibition, shifting set, cognitive abilities, various types of memory, and executive functioning skills (such as planning, organization), and further assess how social difficulties, sleep issues, and medication side effects are impeding his learning. After phone calls and emails from them (including from the director of Special Education) trying to explain how they were sure that their evaluation would cover everything, I asked AGAIN for them to send me a specific list of tests and assessments that they planned to use on difficult child. This is the list I received: I'm thinking it's not sufficient, but I know nothing about these tests- except I thought the Conners form is for adhd. And I had no idea that executive functioning could be assessed by "behavior rating" forms. Also, does anyone know what "resiliency scale" is? Does anyone know specificly how I should address this? At one point, I was told that I need to allow them to do these tests, then if I'm not happy with the results, I could ask for an IEE. What I asked for was a comprehensive evaluation that included all tests necessary and if they didn't have anyone employed by the sd who was qualified to do them, then they needed to pay for them to be done by someone else. Thoughts?
