For your convenience, the Center for Accessibility Resources has provided the following forms: ADD/ADHD Documentation and Center for Accessibility Resources Documentation.

If you choose not to use these forms, the guidelines for documentation are listed below:

  1. Documentation must appear on letterhead and be typed, signed and dated, clearly stating the assessor's name, title and professional credentials.
  2. Generally, an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or a 504 Plan from a secondary school by itself does not provide adequate information for the provision of academic accommodations at the post-secondary level. However, if the IEP includes the items listed below, it may be acceptable.
  3. Learning disability documentation needs to include assessment of aptitude, academic achievement, and information processing abilities, diagnosis, clinical summary and recommendations.
  4. Diagnosticians should include suggestions for accommodations. It is extremely helpful when diagnosticians provide suggestions for reasonable accommodations appropriate at the post-secondary level of education. Such recommendations should be supported by the assessment results and by the diagnosis. Recommendations will be evaluated by the Director of Center for Accessibility Resources on a case by case basis. Accommodations cannot fundamentally alter the basic nature or essential curricular components of an institution's courses, programs or activities.
