Individuals who have a documented need will be evaluated to receive services from the Office of Adaptive Services. Documentation must be completed by a professional and must be completed within the last three years for undergraduates and within the last five years for transfer or graduate students and /or diagnosis as an adult.
For individuals who are documenting a learning disability, the documentation must be a complete psychoeducational battery of tests. Examples of some of the tests that can be administered are:
Note: A licensed psychologist usually administers these tests.
For individuals who are documenting a physical or psychological disability, the documentation must be from a doctor or specialist who can document the extent of the disability and the ramifications of having such a disability.
IEP’s and former teacher recommendations are helpful in eliciting services, but these types of documentation ARE NOT sufficient for primary documentation. In addition, if current documentation is too old and more up to date testing needs to be done, the Office of Adaptive Services will refer the student to the Counseling and Psychological Services office (CAPS), with the cost of the testing being at the expense of the individual. The Guidelines for Documentation form will be helpful in choosing the appropriate documentation.
*Delay of services due to late receipt of documentation and required forms are not the responsibility of the Office of Adaptive Services or the Director.
