Learning Disability or Attention Deficit Disorder Documentation

Tests used to identify disabilities are to be valid, reliable, nationally normed and standardized assessments, including but not limited to the following:

    1. Cognitive Assessments
      • Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale
      • Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scales
      • Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Cognitive Abilities
      • Achievement Assessments
        • Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Achievement
        • Wechsler Individual Achievement Test
        • Woodcock Reading Mastery Tests

The diagnosis of learning disability and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) requires comprehensive assessment of intellectual and achievement information, with ADHD providing additional support for attention concerns.  Other non-learning disabilities concerns requiring accommodation, such as anxiety, depression, or other conditions may also be required to provide assessment results to support the need for services.

    3. Documentation is based on a current evaluation (usually within three years) and historical documents.
