Accommodation Documentation Guidelines
To ensure the provision of reasonable and appropriate services for students with disabilities at Eastern Iowa Community Colleges, students needing accommodations and services are required to provide current and comprehensive documentation of their disability.
This information helps the DSP on your campus to work with you to determine appropriate academic accommodations and services.
Please provide the following form to your healthcare provider when requesting documentation: Verification of Disability Form
Documentation of the disability should include:
- The diagnosis of the condition
- The severity and longevity of the condition
- A description of the functional difficulties and limitations in an educational setting
- Recommendations for academic accommodations
- Signature and contact information of diagnostician including mailing address, telephone
number, and email address.
Typically, high school 504 Plans or Individualized Education Plan (IEP) are not sufficient documentation for the provision of accommodations, but may be used to supplement disability information.
For learning disabilities, ADD or ADHD, traumatic brain injuries and most psychiatric
disabilities, a full psycho-educational test battery should be included in the document.
Disability Services will not accept the following:
- Information that is illegible
- Information from non-appropriately licensed professionals
- Research articles
- Documentation that is provided by a member of the student’s family
If you have any questions about the validity of your documentation, please contact the Disability Service provider on your campus.
