What is an Independent Educational Evaluation? What are the benefits? An IEE is a private evaluation performed by experienced, qualified professionals outside the school system. It provides a detailed view of a student's unique learning style and educational needs. If you are the parent or guardian of a child with learning differences, an IEE will give you a keen understanding of your child's cognitive abilities, and academic strengths and weakness. A diagnosis or specific learning disability may be identified. A clear interpretation of the results leads to educational recommendations including remediation and accommodations.

Who Needs an Evaluation?
You suspect you or your child may have a learning disorder or ADD.
Your child is struggling in school in spite of prior interventions.
Your child spends an extraordinary amount of time on schoolwork, but cannot meet classroom expectations
Your student performs poorly on tests.
You or your child has difficulty with organization, focus and attention.
Your child appears frustrated or dislikes school.
Accommodations or modifications through a 504 Plan or an RTI Plan are needed in the school setting.
College students who need to be re-tested or were never tested, but require accommodations for educational success.
There is a history of learning disabilities or similar difficulties in your family history.
The school personnel responsible for developing your child's educational program must review and consider the information presented in the IEE, but are not required to act on it. Most often, however, public and private school faculty welcome additional information on a student's learning needs and value the detailed recommendations.
In the college setting, this evaluation may be used to identify disabilities which qualify the student for accommodations necessary for academic success in higher education.
Confidentiality Statement: All evaluations are strictly confidential and will only be released as requested by the client or guardian.
