Asperger's Syndrome Documentation Guidelines for Service Eligibility

In order to establish eligibility for support services and/or reasonable accommodations, students must provide disability documentation from a professional licensed or certified to diagnose and treat their disability(ies).

Disability documentation related to the need for cognitively based accommodations (e.g., testing modifications, note takers) must be completed by a licensed psychologist or a licensed neuropsychologist and must include the following items completed no earlier than the student's 10th grade year:

Additional insight related to behavioral, social, or emotional issues, or associated needs may be provided by a psychologist or a psychiatrist.

These standards of acceptable documentation are designed to insure the integrity of Services for Students with Disabilities' eligibility criteria and provide our staff with meaningful information about the strengths, weaknesses, and disability-related needs of the students who seek our assistance. They have been developed in line with the professional practices of post-secondary education.  Thank for your understanding and cooperation.
