Educational Evaluation Services

Although Educational Evaluations can be provided by your local public school, an Independent Educational Evaluation or Educational Consultation can provide the family and school with important additional information. These services can be done independently, or in conjunction with other evaluations performed here at Kennedy Krieger Institute (KKI). Educational services are provided by special educators with advanced degrees and extensive expertise in a variety of conditions that can affect school performance.
