Verification of Disability

SAS certificated staff uses documentation to evaluate a student’s experience of their condition, identify impacts on a major life activity, and identify impacts in an academic setting. By means of this review combined with consultation with the student, certificated staff makes informed decisions to determine reasonable and appropriate accommodations. Documentation must include the provider’s signature, license number, and contact information, as well as student's name and identifying information such a date of birth or social security number. If the documentation provided does not contain sufficient information for staff to determine whether an accommodation is necessary, the student will be informed of the insufficiency and additional documentation may be requested. Temporary accommodations may be arranged pending receiving additional documentation and will be at the discretion of certificated staff in consultation with the student and SAS Director.
