WHAT IS EVALUATION?

The evaluator is responsible for sharing the results of the child’s evaluation and assessment with his/her parents, in a manner that is understandable to parents. The parent must have the opportunity to discuss the results of the evaluation with the evaluation team, or a designated member of the evaluation team, who conducted the evaluation, including any concerns the parent has about the evaluation process and the extent to which the parent believes the evaluation accurately reflects the child’s abilities and needs. The evaluator is responsible for helping parents to understand the results and ensuring the evaluation has addressed the parent’s concerns and observations about the child.
