Physical Disabilities - Documentation
Documentation must include, but not be limited to the following:
Name, title, and professional credentials of the evaluator

A current medical diagnosis including appropriate medical reports, relevant medical history, and a clinical summary should be provided. These assessments should validate the need for services based on the impact of the student's disability and level of functioning in an educational setting.
Evaluation of impact
Documentation should indicate a substantial limitation and should include any prior history of accommodations needed.
Documentation should indicate reasonable accommodations specific to the diagnosed disability with an explanation as to why each accommodation is recommended.
