Susan and I obtained a third-party neuropsychological evaluation for our oldest daughter, Leigh, to ensure she receives the public education supports mandated by federal law. Many parents don’t realize you can obtain and submit an independent evaluation to a school district.

What are the benefits of an independent special education evaluation? Should your family consider requesting a “second opinion” if you’re unsatisfied with a school-provided evaluation?
