Special Education Testing

The types of special education testing and assessment performed varies depending upon the learning disabilities and disorders the child has as well as the degree and severity of the disorder. The assessment can be done by an independent or school professional. After the assessment, an evaluation can be done and then a meeting can be set up to discuss the appropriate intervention and accommodation for the child.
