IDEA requires IEP teams to notify parents of their rights and procedural safeguards when informing them about the need to assess their child, either to determine eligibility or to re-evaluate to show growth. IEP teams must describe the purpose of assessments and describe the assessments that will be used when securing permission from parents to evaluate their child. Providing informational brochures can help parents understand assessment and document the team’s attempts to inform parents and involve them in the decision-making process.
