There is going to be a lot of information you need to learn about - - good stuff though, good info to help your daughter.

Its great the school is on top of starting the testing process.
Here is a link that explains a lot of the process, how long it will take etc.... http://nichcy.org/schoolage
It is all mandated by "Special Education", but it is up to you to make sure the school puts proper supports in place to help your daughter succeed.

If your daughter does have a learning disability, she will not necessarily be placed in Special Ed, but she will have the option if deemed necessary. There is a lot the "typical" classroom teacher can do to support her, and the school district may be responsible for extra supports.

Hope this helps some, take care!
