Documentation

Disability related documentation should provide information on the functional impact of the disability so that effective accommodations can be identified.  Criteria for the source, scope and content of documentation differs by disability type.  Documentation may include assessments, reports, and/or letters from qualified evaluators, professionals, or institutions. Common sources of documentation are health care providers, psychologists, diagnosticians, and/or information from a previous school (e.g., accommodation agreements/letters, 504, IEP, or ARD documents).

Suggested Documentation Elements:

  • Typed on letterhead, dated, and signed by a qualified professional

  • Functional limitations or symptoms (Limitations inform which accommodations are appropriate)
  • Severity and/or expected progression
