The EDUFAX Educational FAQ


Question #25:
  • Is there any way I can help my 9 year old LD son prepare for the IOWA test ? I cannot find a copy of the test to review in advance.
Answer #25:
  • Your reference librarian or the Special Education Department of your District Pupil Services Department should be able to help you find a copy of Tests in Print so that you can see the format of the IOWA test.
    Make sure, that provisions have been made for your son's special testing circumstances. Well in advance of the test date, request a detailed explanation of his accommodations in writing from the Special Ed teacher. If the system tries to tell you that your son will not require special accommodations, don't back down. Insist that the accommodations mentioned in your son's IEP for daily classroom activities be followed to the letter.
    There are a variety of accommodations in addition to extended or unlimited time. Some students need to have the test read to them, others need enlarged print, some need a scribe, and the list goes on. Make sure that the accommodations your son receives put him on an even playing field.
    Remember -- an informed parent is a child's best advocate.
    EDUFAX provides advocacy services for the LD student and family at PPT meetings.
