Students who have a documented disability are eligible for auxiliary aids and services. Eligible disability categories include Deaf or Hard-of-hearing, specific learning disability, orthopedic impairment, speech or language impairment, emotional or behavioral disability, autism spectrum disorder, traumatic brain injury, and other health impairments.
Documentation must be provided from a licensed or certified professional, such as a physician, a psychologist, an audiologist, a learning disability specialist, or other health care specialists. Documentation should also include a written statement of a diagnosed disability, identification of the instruments used as well as professional interpretation of testing results. Such documentation may also include a physician’s statement, vocational rehabilitation records, or public/private school records (e.g., a 504 accommodations plan, an Individual Educational Plan, or IEP).
