Documentation

Accommodation planning is based on the documentation and information provided by the student during an initial interview. Documentation must come from a registered health care professional experienced in the field of the student's disability. It should include a diagnostic statement and a description of functional limitations, in particular those that have an impact on performance in a university environment.

All documentation must be on the practitioner's official letterhead, indicating name of practitioner, professional credentials, address, phone number, date and signature.

Qualified practitioners include: Physician, Psychiatrist, Psychologist, Audiologist, Chiropractor, Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapist, Speech-Language Pathologist.

Students with a Learning Disability (LD) or
Attention Deficit Hyperactviity Disorder (ADD/ADHD):

LD and ADHD documentation will be reviewed by our Office to make sure that it meets our guidelines. Please submit your report with the Pre-registration form as early as possible.

What we need:

  • Copy of your latest psychoeduational assessment completed by a registered psychologist. The assessment should have been completed within the last 3 years.
  • An IEP may be submitted with the psychologist assessment but is not adequate documentation for the purpose of accommodation planning at Queen's University.
  • A letter from a professional qualified to diagnose ADD/ADHD may accompany a psychoeducational assessment.

Please refer to the following for LD and ADD/ADHD documentation requirements at Queen's University.
