RMTC-D/HH may assist districts with limited capacity in the completion of certain student assessments and evaluations needed to develop and implement IEPs. Priority is given to districts identified as small and rural and/or qualifying for intensive technical assistance as established by RMTC-D/HH. To request assistance with an assessment or evaluation, please fill out this form.

The Florida School for Deaf and Blind (FSDB) offers Outreach Evaluation Services assistance to school districts across the state of Florida by evaluating students who are deaf/hard of hearing, blind/visually impaired, or dual-sensory impaired. School districts can refer students to FSDB for assessment services on the FSDB campus. Evaluation results are shared with the school district IEP team to identify each student's programming needs, classroom accommodations or modifications, and service delivery strategies. Learn more about FSDB's evaluation services.

Multidisciplinary evaluation teams should meet to determine the most appropriate evaluation tools based on the student's abilities and needs and the team's concerns.

Once assessments are completed, the team may collect and organize data using the Florida Individual Performance Profile for Students who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing (FLIPP). The FLIPP is an optional resource designed as a multi-purpose data-based discussion tool that presents a "picture" of standardized and functional assessments for children who D/HH. It is not an assessment by itself; rather, it is a tool to profile the results of the various assessments conducted.
