I read the following quote from the wright's law website: http://www.wrightslaw.com/advoc/articles/plan_iep_goals.html

"Assume that your child has a language learning disability like dyslexia. The child’s skills in reading, writing, spelling and math should be measured before the child enters special education and at frequent intervals thereafter."

Does anyone know if the school is required to measure the child's skills and if yes, how long they can put you off before they actually test these skills?

I've found that getting the school to do testing takes months not weeks and I don't have that kind of time!

Any advice/input appreciated!
