Q: Whats the difference between public school evaluations and private evaluations?
A: A free educational evaluation is available by request to your local school district's Child Find coordinator in the Special Education Department. We recommend that requests be made in writing. The difference between public school testing and private testing may best be explained as follows:
- Public School testing is performed to determine if there is an eligibility or educational need. Certain criteria is often met for special education or related services. A Public School is not required to accept outside diagnosis or evaluations; a "diagnosis" does not guarantee special education services. For more information, visit your state's public education website. For Texas residents, the public school education information is available at TEXAS EDUCATION AGENCY http://www.tea.state.tx.us/ .

- Private Evaluations may be more in depth and comprehensive to consider all aspects of learning challenges and are not driven by certain sets of "criteria" to determine eligibility for public education program services.
