Psychoeducational Evaluation / IEE
Estimated Cost $3,500-$4,200
Psychoeducational evaluations focus on student achievement including learning-related issues or strengths as well as emotional or behavioral concerns. These evaluations are utilized to determine if a student has a specific learning disability and can also be used to identify those who are gifted and talented (GT) or display a twice-exceptional learning profile (2E).
Independent Educational Evaluation (IEE)
An IEE is a psychoeducational evaluation that is typically funded by your local school district. These are sometimes requested when a client was evaluated by his or her school district, but parents do not agree with the results of the district’s evaluation or the conceptualization of their child. Or, a parent may wish to have an independent opinion. In some cases, a district will request an IEE because they seek to find the appropriate or optimal resources for their student.
The terms and scope of an IEE are specified through a formal contract between the district and Emerge. It should be noted that the release of an IEE report is typically stipulated to be released to the student’s family and his/her school district at the same time. Parents may also have an IEE completed at their own expense and the results could remain private.
IEE’s are generally structured similarly to psychological or psychoeducational evaluation services.

Upon receipt of a contract from your school district, the Emerge team will proceed with scheduling your Independent Educational Evaluation.
