Independent Educational Evaluations

We contract directly with school districts to provide comprehensive speech and language evaluations for school-aged children whose family disagrees with the eligibility determination or programming and services proposed by their school district and would like a second opinion.  Evaluations include in-depth testing of a range of communication skills, consultation with district staff, receipt of a detailed clinical report, recommended eligibility determination, recommended IEP goals, and recommended classroom accommodations.  


1) Contact Katie Stuepfert to request an evaluation.

2) Receive a contract for approval by district administration.

3) Upon receipt of a signed contract, Katie will gather background information from the student's educational team and schedule a date for the evaluation.  The evaluation typically occurs at the Aspire clinic.

4) Evaluation is completed, including collecting a case history from the parents, classroom observation, administration of appropriate standardized evaluation tools and informal evaluations such as language sampling.

4) Detailed clinical report is submitted to the student's educational team, including recommendation for eligibility finding, detailed information about language skills and needs and recommended IEP goals and accommodations (if appropriate).

5) Invoice is submitted to the district for payment.

Current fees for an independent educational evaluation are available upon request.  Billable activities include all direct evaluation time, consultation with district staff and travel.
