I have a friend who pulled her D out of school and began homeschooling this year (2016-2017).  Her D was on an IEP while in public school and is working with various tutors now that she is homeschooling.  

 

My friend's D is beginning 6th grade next year, and my friend plans to homeschool her D through high school.  When should my friend look into getting testing accommodations?  Would you recommend that she continue to have her D evaluated by the public school to keep the IEP current?

While College Board has streamlined the accommodation process for public school students, I don't think it has changed much for homeschoolers. In the past you have to have a current (within 5 years for learning disabilities, sooner for others) neuropsych exam with a diagnosis. An IEP didn't matter if you didn't have an official diagnosis with accommodations listed as needed.

 

I"m not sure it hurts to keep the IEP current and it would be helpful if ever returning. However more is usually needed for SAT/ACT and college accommodations. On the other hand, you don't have to ever have had a school IEP as my son has accommodations without one.
