This week in my special education class we discussed the importance of evaluation, and placement of children with special needs. I never understood how important it is to truly test a child in every category possible to get the proper diagnosis. As I have been working in the special education field I have come to see many different types of disabilities. I know that it take many different specialists to truly understand what is best for the child, and they are there to make the proper placement of many different children.Special needs children need all of the help that they can get, and that is why a proper diagnosis is critical for them to achieve.Whether it is screening, Standardized tests,Curriculum based assessment, or alternative assessment we need to do everything possible to help out these special students.Not every student is the same, therefore every diagnosis will be unique, and specific for that individual.
