The EDUFAX Educational FAQ

I have a LEARNING DISABILITY.....

Question #60:
  • My daughter's school has requested psychoeducational testing. Is there a federal law that states who has the financial responsibility for the cost of testing? Please let me know where I can read that law for myself?
Answer #60:
  • When a public school system brings a family into the spectrum of special education services, they are required to provide printed information concerning your specific rights as parents in your state. If the request came from the school, they will assume the costs of the testing as long as you have it done by school system personnel. If you choose to use outside testers, however, the school system has the right to decide whether or not to reimburse you. Since I am not a lawyer, I hesitate to give the definitive word on legal matters. However, there are many sites defining educational law on the internet, including Wrightslaw.com where education law specialists Peter and Pam Wright address such problems.
    EDUFAX provides services for the Learning Disabled Student.
