These are evaluations to determine whether a child qualifies for special education under any of the 13 eligibility categories. If a child does not qualify under special education, I determine whether a 504 plan is appropriate. I have expertise determining whether a student qualifies for services under the Special Education categories of Autism (including Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)), Intellectual Disability (ID), Specific Learning Disorder (SLD), Other Health Impairment (OHI) including ADHD or other medical condition, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Visual Impairment (VI) including blindness, Orthopedic Impairment (OI), Deafness or Hard of Hearing, Deaf-Blindness, and Multiple Disabilities (MD). I also have expertise in the Developmental Delay (DD) category which applies to children under the age of 3.
