Who is eligible for our services?

According to The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act, a student with a disability is someone who has a physical or mental impairment; has a history of impairment; or is believed to have a disability that substantially limits a major life activity such as learning, speaking, seeing, hearing, breathing, walking, caring for one’s self, or performing manual tasks. Documentation of a diagnosed disability is required for eligibility to services.

I may have a disability but I have not been diagnosed, how can I get evaluated?
