Documentation guidelines for other disabilities

Students with many different types of disabilities are provided with accommodations on College Board tests. The list on the request for accommodations and on this website is not intended to be exhaustive.

If the student's disability is not included in the list of disabilities, the disabling condition should be entered under "other impairment (specify)." If this is the student’s only disability, include documentation for review.

To be eligible for accommodations on College Board tests, a student with a disability must have documentation that meets the College Board's Guidelines for Documentation, including evidence of functional limitation.  See:

Additionally, the student's documentation should include:

  • A clear statement of the diagnosis
  • A summary of the assessment procedures and evaluation instruments used to make the diagnosis
  • A narrative summary of the evaluation results
  • A rationale for each accommodation recommended by the evaluator

For information on documentation for specific accommodations, see
