What rights does a parent have for a child that was not diagnosed with a learning disability in their school though the parents kept asking for 3 years and has since been privatly diagnosed?

Did the school outright deny testing your child when you

requested it? If so, you should have received a record of their

reason in writing.

Schools usually perform LD tests when parents make a request. If

the school did test and did not find a discrepancy between IQ and

performance, you also should have received the results in writing

from these.

If your student was found ineligible, you could have challenged

that finding. It seems as if you are beyond that step already.

It will depend on whether the school followed protocols. But you

may want to look at NICHCY for further information.
