Evidence of Current Need
Please start by reviewing SAS' general documentation guidelines.
Statements of the student's current (within 3 years) functioning and needs and the evaluator's related recommendations are most helpful for determining reasonable accommodations and services. These should incorporate updated testing, a social-emotional assessment, any current medications, and the student's response to medication.
Because history, including age of onset and developmental progress, is an important element of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), a single, unified report may not be available or practical for determination of disability eligibility or of accommodations. Therefore, a number of documents, reports, and/or evaluations will likely need to be submitted in order for SAS to be best able to knowledgeably work with a student with ASD. A thoroughly completed SAS Verification Form may also be helpful.
