2 Identification/Diagnosis

Paula Lombardi

2. Identification/Diagnosis (Who are the qualified examiners?)

As a special educator, you will be a member of a team of professionals, and family members who assess and determine if the student has a disability that impacts their access to education and is eligible for special education services.

The special education case manager is responsible for setting up meetings for this team and following a timeline for assessment and reevaluation meetings. The special education teacher has a role in the assessment process which includes contacting assessors, setting up meeting dates, assessing the student, and writing assessment reports.

In this section you will identify the qualified examiners and assessments required for each disability category.
