What is a referral? A referral is a written request for an evaluation that is given to the school district when it is suspected that a child has a disability that requires special education services.
If you believe that your child may have a disability, you may refer your child for an evaluation by submitting a written request to your school district. Address the letter to your child’s teacher, a case manager, or the Director of Exceptional Children & Student Services, along with a brief reason of why you would like to refer your child for evaluation.
