Whether educational evaluations for students with disabilities may be performed through telehealth and/or telemedicine means?
At this time, only those evaluations, or portions of evaluations, which can be performed without the face-to-face interaction of the student and the evaluator may be performed remotely, provided the parent consents. All other evaluations should be postponed, after providing appropriate Prior Written Notice, until clear guidance is issued on the appropriateness of evaluation through telehealth/telemedicine or the current public health emergency is lifted and schools reopen.
