What is EDUFAX?
The EDUFAX Educational FAQ
I have a LEARNING DISABILITY.....
take me back to the list of questions
- 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.
- 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
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.
