Obtaining an IEP for Elementary School Age Child

Hey there - we just moved from Brooklyn and my younger daughter has had some executive functioning issues and i would like to get her an IEP assessment. Being that i just moved here- does anyone know where i begin? She will be starting 4th gr. at Oxford in a few weeks.... any help is amazing! Thank you!

Research the DREDF - CA  website for information, they also have phone contacts and workshops on navigating the IEP process. Good Luck..

Make your request in writing to the principal of the school, detailing your concerns and requesting evaluation for an IEP.   

Make sure to attend the free training "IEP Basics and Beyond" which is offered on the first monday of every month (next one is August 8, which is tomorrow).   This is hosted by DREDF: Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund, which is located at the Ed Roberts campus on Adeline (it sits on top of the Ashby BART station).     To register, go to the website https://dredf.org      The training is full of so much information. be prepared to take lots of notes.
