Special Needs : Testing and Consultants for Struggling Learners HSLDA recommends that parents of children with special needs use the services of an educational consultant to help determine levels of functioning and progress made throughout the year. Most importantly, consultants can help provide instructional techniques that the parent can use instead of the typical curriculum that works well for the other members in the family, but not for the struggling learner. These consultants help the parent explore many different methods to help their child get past the learning blocks that are preventing him from succeeding. They can serve as your encourager, instructional guide, and vouch for the progress your child has made each year, if this should ever be called into question by any officials. How can you find a good consultant to partner with you in your endeavors? Online Resources Evaluations What kind of quarterly evaluations/contacts are necessary? HSLDA does not specify what the evaluation should involve. Should I send the evaluations to HSLDA? No. No.
