SUPPORTING DISABILITY DOCUMENTS

The documentation process is a deliberative and collaborative process involving both the student and the Office of Disability Services.  This process serves to identify how the intersection between the design of the course and the student's disability creates a barrier to the student’s access to higher education.  Once barriers are identified, the conversation starts on how an accommodation may alleviate the barrier.

Disability documents might come from a doctor's office, mental health clinic, testing report, specialist report, or your high school accommodation records.

Your disability document must clearly have your name on it and clearly have identification as to whom has written the document such as doctor's/clinic's letterhead and signature.

Your disability document should include information regarding your diagnosis, treatment information, and any other important details regarding your diagnosis.

Documentation Guidelines:

  1. Clear Diagnostic statement of the disability
  2. How the disability impacts functioning
  3. Documentation is provided by a licensed or otherwise properly credentialed professional
