The evaluation process is the first step in determining if a child needs special education services, a Section 504 Plan or another educational intervention. Parents need to understand the reasons to have a child evaluated, the steps in the evaluation process and the options that can be pursued if there is a disagreement about evaluation.
In-person trainings are offered throughout the state of Missouri. Parents living outside the state are permitted to attend but are encouraged to attend trainings in their home state. States have different laws and procedures regarding how children with disabilities receive special education and related services.
