Independent Educational Evaluations

Federal law defines an IEE as “an evaluation conducted by a qualified examiner who is not employed by the public agency responsible for the education of the child in question.”  Typically, families seek IEE’s when they believe the school’s evaluation is not appropriate (i.e., inaccurate or incomplete).  While any individual can have a psychoeducational evaluation completed by a professional outside of the school system, IEE’s are often paid for by the school district.  The school will pay for an IEE only if it can be demonstrated that the evaluation conducted by the school was not appropriate.  The purpose of these evaluations is to uncover the student’s profile of abilities and determine how it affects her/his learning. A comprehensive psychoeducational evaluation includes the collection of background information from the parent, behavioral observations, direct testing of cognitive processes, academic, socio-emotional functioning, and additional information from parents and teachers. All the information is then integrated into diagnostic conclusions, and recommendations follow from these conclusions.
