Documentation Guidelines

You are the best source for the information we need. While we do rely on some third party documentation, it is imperative that we speak with you regarding your experiences in the educational environment during your Welcome appointment.

When Disability Resource Center reviews third-party documentation, we are looking for two key elements:

  1. The information is provided by an evaluator who is qualified to diagnose the condition.
  2. Documentation supports the requested accommodations.

The best way to provide the information needed by DRC is to share the Accommodation Support Form with your physician, psychologist, etc. DRC created these fill-in-the-blank forms to assist professional evaluators in providing the information necessary to support a student’s request for disability accommodations at WIU. Although we must have disability documentation from a third-party professional on file, the use of our form is not required, and you may submit documentation in other formats (e.g., doctor’s letters, psycho-educational reports, etc.). Links to Accommodation Support Forms for specific disability categories are listed below.
