Outside documentation



Hi all, curious to know...once a school district uses an outside evaluation to develop an IEP (vision assessment and psych eval, 1st grade), will they allow  use of a neuropsych from an outside agency to add to the IEP if needed?

I think this would be case by case and district specific. Just as there is nothing in federal law that says that they have to do anything other than "consider" outside evaluations, I don't think you're going to find any guidance about using a neuropsychologist to add to the IEP. If you have recommendations from a neuropsych, I'd include them in your parent concerns letter prior to the IEP just as you would any other data from outside providers. This can help you establish the child's "needs" for adding services, goals and placement.
