Disability Verification Guidelines | Springfield College

Disability Verification Guidelines

To qualify for disability services and resources, students are required to provide quality disability documentation from a licensed diagnostician familiar with the history and functional limitations of the impairment (see specific guidelines below). Failure to provide all required information may prevent the student from receiving requested accommodations and/or services.

Seven Essential Elements Of Quality Disability Documentation

  • The credentials of the evaluator(s)
  • A diagnostic statement identifying the disability
  • A description of the diagnostic methodology used
  • A description of the current functional limitations
  • A description of the expected progression of stability of the disability
  • A description of the current accommodations, services or modifications
  • Recommendations for accommodations, adaptive services, assistive services, compensatory services, and/or collateral support services
