I think I have a student that needs evaluation. I believe he may have a disability.
Okay, Mrs. Jones, let me talk to his mother and see how she feels about the evaluation process and we'll go from there.
Hello, Ms. Davis, Cody's teacher and I suspect that Cody may have a disability that is effecting his learning abilities. We have contacted you to ask for permission for Cody to be evaluated, so that we can help him to the best of our abilities.
Okay, I understand. Let's see what we can get figured out. Help my son.
Alright Cody, you're going to take this test for me. I'm the school's psychologist and I'm here to help you complete it.
Evaluation: It usually looks at three intelligence quotient (IQ) scores: verbal IQ, performance IQ, and full-scale IQ. The subtests within these areas often provide good information about a student’s strengths as well as his or her challenges. It also is often used to determine the amount of time a student may be in the general-education classroom or even school.
A group of qualified professionals and Ms. Davis look at Cody's evaluation results and decide if he has a disability. Ms. Davis agreed with the group that Cody does have a disability.
