What happens during the evaluation process prior to the eligibility meeting?
After a parent provides consent to the evaluation, individual diagnostic evaluations are conducted by qualified professionals, such as a social worker, school psychologist, educational diagnostician and/or speech-language therapist. Prior to the eligibility meeting, evaluators are available to review and interpret the evaluation results with parents.
All evaluation reports are made available to the parents at the child’s school no later than two (2) business days before the Eligibility Meeting and provided to the parents no later than 10 days after the meeting at no cost. For preschool-aged children referred by Preschool Child Find Center, evaluation reports will be available at the LCPS Administration Building (21000 Education Court, Ashburn, VA 20148).
Invitations to Eligibility Meetings are sent to parent(s) approximately two weeks prior to the eligibility meeting date.
