An Individual Educational Plan (IEP) is a document that describes accommodations that will be made to instruct your child if they have been found eligible for special education services. It is a legal document valid in all 50 states and U.S. territories.
An Independent Educational Evaluation (IEE) refers to an assessment performed by a qualified examiner not affiliated with the public agency (e.g., your school district) responsible for the child's education under consideration. It is an evaluation conducted by an impartial professional to provide an objective and unbiased assessment of the child's educational needs and progress.
What is an IEP/IEE?
Why Should I Get a Second Opinion?
Has your child been evaluated by their school psychologist? Did you disagree with the evaluation results?
If so, state and federal law allows you to request an IEE from your school district.
At Kinsler Psychology, we have conducted mini-IEEs to assist parents in further assessing and documenting the needs of their child. Dr. Kinsler also has over a decade of experience writing IEPs.We will work with you and your school district to accomplish this goal of identifying and making appropriate recommendations to meet your child's educational needs.
Does Insurance Cover These Evaluations?
An IEE is paid for at public expense. This evaluation is free; however, you must have prior authorization from your school district. An IEP will automatically be written for your child if they are found eligible for special education services.
How do I Make an appointment for this?
To begin this process, you must first contact your local school district to formally make the request.
If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call; we are here to help.
