Other Disabling Conditions

General Information

AccessibleNU will serve students who have disabling conditions that do not fall in any of the other categories elaborated on our documentation guidelines page. Decisions regarding appropriate accommodations will be made on a case-by-case basis.

Documentation of the following information is helpful, especially if the student's condition is invisible:

  • Diagnosis and relevant explanation
  • Date of diagnosis
  • Date of most recent clinical contact with student
  • Approximate duration of disorder
  • Severity of disorder
  • Description of the student's functional limitations in an educational setting
  • Additional information that seems helpful in determining the nature and severity of the student's disability
  • Additional recommendations that may assist in determining appropriate accommodations and intervention

If AccessibleNU is seeking clarification, the documentation provided may be reviewed by the relevant University agency (such as University Health Service) as determined by the type of documentation provided, for diagnosis of the disabling condition, resulting functional limitations, and accommodation recommendations. AccessibleNU, in conjunction with the student, will make the final decisions regarding accommodations and services based on all of the relevant information.

Verification Form

Medical professionals providing the above information may find it helpful to cpmplete ANU's Medical Condition Verification Form on the student's behalf.
