Your daughter may receive a CORE evaluation for suspected special needs and/or learning disabilities. This should be provided by the school, free of charge, as mandated by federal and state law. I would also encourage you to find an independent educational psychologist, one not affiliated with this school system. Ask the school for written documentation of their request for testing your daughter for learning disabilities, along with their rationale for doing so. Present this documentation to an experienced educational psychologist, one who tests children your daughter's age for learning disabilities. She'll let you know whether this testing is necessary.
