Averett University is devoted to ensuring that all students who submit appropriate documentation of a disability receive reasonable accommodations in accordance with the submitted documentation. It is our belief that accommodations will provide equal access to opportunities provided by Averett. Documentation from a licensed clinician and/or official authorized to diagnose disabilities who is not a family member or other individual with a personal relationship with the student Documentation must include the following: 1). A clear diagnostic statement identifying the disability, 2). Date of the most current diagnostic evaluation, 3). A description of the diagnostic assessment(s)*, method(s), and/or certifying criteria utilized to determine disability, along with examiner’s narrative interpretation.
