Documentation and Accommodations

At Northeastern, documentation of a learning disability and/or attention deficit disorder generally consists of the student’s most recent psycho-educational or neuropsychological evaluation. It may also include the student’s IEP or 504 plan from high school, other relevant history of services and accommodations, and the student’s self-report of his or her experience. Appropriate documentation reflects a student’s historical and current level of functioning, describes the substantial impact(s)/limitation(s) that the student experiences due to the disability, and includes a diagnostic statement. There is no charge for accommodations. Please refer to the DRC’s website on documentation for additional information: www.northeastern.edu/drc.

Learning Disabilities Program (LDP) staff work with the Disability Resource Center (DRC) to determine reasonable accommodations for students in the LDP. If you have questions about documentation for a student applying to the LDP, please contact us.
