Documentation Guidelines: Physical and Sensory Disabilities

  1. Documentation must include a medical diagnosis of the disability/condition.

  2. The diagnosis should be made by an appropriate medical provider or specialist in the specific field of disability.  The evaluator’s name, title, and professional credentials and affiliations should be provided.

  3. The documentation should include the following information:

    • Duration of the disability - Is the disability temporary or permanent?  If temporary, an estimate of how long the condition will persist.
    • Stability of the disability – Is the disability stable, progressive, fluctuating?
    • Impact of the disability and medication on academic functions such as the ability to concentrate, ability to attend class regularly, stamina, mobility, etc.
  4. Recommendations for academic accommodations based on specific symptoms of the disability. The documentation must reflect the current status of the disability.  If the documentation does not, students may be required to submit updated information and/or documentation.
