Documenting a Disability

Students who need accommodations must submit appropriate documentation of a disability. Since arranging services can take time, we ask that you make your requests far enough in advance so that we can best serve you. Appropriate documentation is listed below.

Specific Learning Disability: Students with a specific learning disability (SLD) must provide a psychologist's report with qualifying cognitive and processing standardized test scores taken within the past three to five years and a diagnosis of a learning disorder. The report can be from a licensed school or private psychologist.

ADD/ADHD and psychological, emotional, or psychiatric disorders: Students must provide a letter or report less than three years old detailing the specific diagnosis from a qualified psychologist, psychiatrist or other M.D.

Hearing: Students with a hearing disability must provide an audiogram indicating their level of hearing loss.
