A Full Individual Evaluation (FIE) serves as the foundation to initiating student support services in an education setting. At times the process of requesting, and understanding an evaluation can be challenging for students and families, further complicated by developing a plan to support students based on evaluation data. During this webinar on April 27 at 12:15 p.m. CT, Dr. Michelle Simmons from West Texas A&M University’s Center for Learning Disabilities will provide an overview of critical education policy as it relates to evaluation and ARD meeting processes in Texas, and equip parents with helpful tips to successfully collaborate with student support team meeting members during the evaluation and IEP development processes. Topics covering dyslexia assessment and intervention services will be specifically addressed.
Dr. Michelle Simmons is the Lanna Hatton Professor of Learning Disabilities, Director for the Center for Learning Disabilities, and an Assistant Professor of special education in the Department of Education at West Texas A&M University. At WTAMU, Dr. Simmons teaches undergraduate special educator preparation courses and graduate educational diagnostic courses.
