Use these documentation guidelines to assist you in obtaining appropriate documentation from qualified professionals. Appropriate documentation of a disability is only one part of determining necessary accommodations. Documentation of your disability will help you educate staff and faculty about the impact of your disability and any accommodations that FLC may provide. At FLC, we may request documentation for the following reasons:

  • To verify the existence of a disability
  • To assist in the collaborative determination of individual needs and eligibility for auxiliary aids and services to minimize the impact of the disability 
  • To personalize students’ rights to equal access to their institutions
