					                            Guidelines for Documentation of Mobility Disorders

These disorders bring about mobility limitations of the upper and/or lower body. They may occur
as a result of accident, progressive neuromuscular diseases, congenital conditions, or repetitive
motion stress injuries.

Professionals recommended to provide documentation include general physicians and specialty
physicians such as podiatrists, neurologists, rheumatologists, physiatrists, and orthopedic
surgeons.

Documentation adequate to establish eligibility for services must include:

        Written statement of diagnosis
        Diagnostic procedures and results, if applicable
        Information regarding current symptoms
        Information regarding restrictions, if any
        Information regarding disorder related functional limitations experienced by the student
        Information regarding prescribed medication(s) and possible side effects on academics
