Documentation will be used to evaluate requests for reasonable
accommodations and/or auxiliary aids. The evaluation process will
include the impact of the documentation on the goals and standards
of the program, course and/or activity.
As appropriate to the disability, the documentation should
include the following six elements:
- A diagnostic statement identifying the disability,
date of the most current diagnostic evaluation, and the date
of the original
- A description of the diagnostic tests, methods, and/or criteria
- A description of the current functional impact of the disability
which includes specific test results and the examiner's narrative
- Treatment, medications, and/or assistive divices/services currently
prescribed or in use.
- A description of the expected progression or stability of the
impact of the disability over time, particularly the next few
- The credentials of the diagnosing professionals if not clear
from the letterhead or other forms.
Beyond the six elements expected to be included in documentation,
recommendations for accommodations, adaptive devices, assistive
services, compensatory strategies and/or collateral support services
will be considered.
