Re: Getting a school to test a child

You asked about a child with potential learning disabilities.

This is actually a complex area of law and you should speak with a lawyer immediately.

The first step would be for the child to speak with a child psychologist, usually available through the school. The psychologist would be the person to recommend testing. If the school psychologist isn't an effective route then a private psychologist should be engaged.

Depending on the results of the consultations and testing only then can the school be compelled to work with you to come up with a plan to accommodate the child's educational needs.
