Documentation Guidelines

All disability documentation should be completed by a qualified professional who is a licensed or otherwise properly credentialed professional who has appropriate training and experience, and has no close, personal relationship with the student being evaluated and should include the following:

  • The credentials of the evaluator(s);
  • A diagnostic statement identifying the disability;
  • Description of the diagnostic methodology used;
  • Description of the current functional limitations;
  • Description of the expected progression or stability of the disability;
  • Current and/or past accommodations, services and/or medications;
  • Recommendations for accommodations, adaptive devices, assistive services, compensatory strategies, and/or collateral support services.
  • Note: If available, please submit the most recent Individualized Education Program(IEP), Educational Evaluation and Psychological Evaluation from the high school child study team.

Upon receipt of this information, we will contact you to schedule a phone or video conference to discuss your request for services.
