[two-third]Obtain a copy of your most recent evaluations (psycho-educational evaluation or medical report). School districts will keep records on file for 7 years. An IEP and/or 504 are not sufficient documentation of a disability. Current documentation should preferably be conducted using adult testing instruments (WAIS). A qualified professional (e.g. licensed psychologist, medical doctor) must conduct the evaluation and provide documentation of a disability. Documentation must be appropriate and recent, generally within three years of the current date, and should include:
- Qualifications of the evaluator
- Dates of testing
- Comprehensive assessment
- Specific diagnosis
- Clinical evidence of a disability
- Rationale for recommended accommodations
For more information regarding appropriate documentation, see the Guide for Students with Disabilities.
