      Hello all,
      My son received a thorough evaluation 4.5 years ago. We are managing ok with medication and my own research. He is doing well academically. How often, or for what reasons, should we get a new evaluation? Thanks!

      I’m not sure if this is the same for every state, but Texas requires that there be an evaluation every 3 years for school related accommodations/services.

      A re-evaluation privately isn’t necessary unless you suspect there’s more going on than the diagnosis, you suspect the diagnosis isn’t correct, or things have changed drastically.

      If your child has an IEP, federal law requires that they are re-evaluated through the school system every 3 years to see if they still qualify for an IEP and special education services.
