Documentation Guidelines

Eligibility for DRC programs is based on the presence of a disability. Documentation of a disability may be needed to help determine if a disability exists or to improve our ability to recommend specific accommodations. When documentation is required it should:

  • Be from a professional such as a medical doctor, audiologist, or psychologist.
  • Be in writing, printed on letterhead with the name, and specialty of the provider stated.
  • Clearly state the nature of the disability.
  • Discuss limitations that might arise in the academic environment.

If the disability is a learning disability, a full evaluation is needed, including the subtest scores.
