Sample Letter to Request Testing

Sample Letter to Request School Testing



Dear (Principal’s name),


I would like to request comprehensive educational testing for my child ________________ who is in _____ grade at __________________school.


I would like a full psycho educational evaluation together with appropriate testing for learning disabilities.  I request my child be tested in all suspected areas of disability, including the areas of auditory processing, executive function, OT, speech and language and a reading disability.  (in this area add any specific disability)


I understand I need to sign a consent form so the school can conduct the evaluation.  If I do not hear from you in three days I will call to set up a time to sign the consent form.


After testing and at least 5 days prior to attending a meeting to discuss the testing results with a team, I request I have a chance to review the result and ask any questions I have with the evaluator.


I understand the school system has 60 days to complete testing and hold a meeting to discuss eligibility.   I look forward to meeting with you on this date.




(your name)
