Resources = Special Education. What this school counselor is referring to are accommodations or modifications that would be written into an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Having her tested is called a Full Individual Evaluation (FIE). These evaluations are intended to gather more information about your daughter, determine if she qualifies for Special Education, and if so, provide her with the accommodations, modifications, and interventions to help her be successful in school. The School Counselor was right. You can initiate the process by writing a letter requesting an evaluation. You are entering a complicated world in terms of complexity and depth. I provided you with a lot of formal terms on purpose, so you can start googling and researching. Best of Luck.
