Specific Documentation Guidelines Are As Follows

  1. Documentation of a learning disability, ADHD/ADD requires (as a minimum) a complete adult intelligence and achievement test results administered by a qualified psychological examiner along with other components.
  2. For health impairments a statement of diagnosis from a medical doctor usually documents the disability.
  3. Psychological testing and rehabilitation records usually document head injuries.
  4. Medical doctor´┐Żs statements verify orthopedic impairments present at birth or the result of later injury.
  5. Hearing impairments or deafness can be verified by the results of an audiogram administered by an audiologist.
  6. The result of a test of visual acuity documents blindness or visual impairment.

As a college student you now come under the American with Disabilities Act, section 504. An IEP or 504 plans will not be considered sufficient documentation unless accompanied by a current and complete evaluation.

Documentation of your disability must be accompanied by recommendations for accommodation from your health care professional or psychological examiner.

Documentation packets are available from the Counselors; please contact the Counseling Center at 434.832.7800 for an accommodation appointment.
