Documentation Guidelines

Documentation must meet the following criteria:

Be written by a qualified practitioner or diagnostician;

Be current- in most cases three years). In some instances, the currency of the documentation will be less given the nature of the disability.  For example, mental health diagnoses may require a more current report;
State a specific diagnosis of the disability;
Include a description of diagnostic methodology, including diagnostic criteria, evaluation methods , testing dates and results;
Be on letterhead and signed by the professional submitting the report;
Explain the impact the disability may have on the student’s academic and vocational environment, and;
Provide a description of any accommodation and/or auxiliary aid used in the past.

The laws applicable to disability accommodations in the college/university setting are different from those in K - 12. IEPs and 504 Plans are welcomed to provide an understanding of the student’s needs.
