Guidelines for Documentation of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Students requesting accommodations on the basis of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) must provide documentation by a neuropsychologist/neurologist. The documentation must include:
- A thorough neuropsychologist evaluation which includes assessment of the areas of attention, visual perception/visual reasoning, language, academic skills, memory/learning, executive functioning, sensory, motor, and emotional status.
- Evidence of current impairment. A history of individuals presenting symptoms and evidence of behaviors that significantly impairs functioning.
- A clinical summary which indicates the substantial limitations to major life activities posed by the disability, describes the extent to which these limitations would impact the academic context for which accommodations are being requested.
*Please note that the College and Disability Service Center reserve the right to deny services or accommodations while the receipt of appropriate documentation is pending.
