Sample Letter for Request for an Evaluation


Dear (Principal’s name),

I want to request comprehensive educational testing for my child ________________ who is in _____ grade at __________________school.

I want a complete psychoeducational evaluation together with appropriate testing for learning disabilities.  I request my child be tested in all suspected areas of disability, including the areas of auditory processing, executive function, OT, speech and language, and a reading disability.  (in this area, add any specific disability)

I understand I need to sign a consent form so the school can conduct the evaluation.  If I do not hear from you within three days, I will call to schedule a time to sign the consent form.

After testing and at least five days before attending a meeting to discuss the testing results with a team, I request I have a chance to review the results and ask any questions I have with the evaluator.

I understand the school system has 60 days to complete testing and hold a meeting to discuss eligibility.   I look forward to meeting with you on this date.



(your name)
