When do children need to be re-evaluated?

Many children are re-evaluated in order to continue to receive the accommodations and specialized instruction that has benefitted them. This may happen every four years. If parents are interested in having testing to gain extended-time accommodations on the A.C.T. or S.A.T., this is best done when the child is in 10th or 11th grade, as their accommodations will be covered through at least the first several years of college (and often throughout college).
