In many cases, providers can thoroughly complete the online SAS Disability Verification Form on a student's behalf to share the information that is most useful to SAS in working with students to determine reasonable accommodations and other supports. (Non-Dartmouth providers will also need to submit a brief, signed and dated letter on letterhead.) If a condition is variable in nature, documentation should generally be no more than one year old so that SAS is in the best position to support current needs.
However, for conditions such as speech/language or learning disorders, attention-defict/hyperactivity disorder, auditory processing disorders, traumatic brain injuries, and Asperger's/autism spectrum disorders, a thorough evaluation report is preferred over the verification form and may be required. Students and providers should review the condition-specific documentation guidelines that apply to them.
