ADHD Documentation requirements

 

If you wish to register with Learning Disability Services, you must provide relevant psychological or medical documentation.

The  ADHD Medical Documentation Form is for students who do not have a full psycho-educational assessment which documents their learning needs and how their ADHD impacts their academics.  Students who submit this form should be aware that they might be requested to go through additional assessment through Learning Disability Services prior to receiving full accommodations.

During peak periods it is possible that from the time that your documentation reaches our office, it can take up to a maximum of 2 weeks for you to see your counsellor for your initial appointment.

Many accommodations take time to implement.  In some cases, students who are approaching us in the middle or near the end of a term might only be able to fully access their accommodations the next term.  Extended time for tests/exams needs to be arranged at the start of each academic term.

You may find it helpful to read information specific to your disability at http://www.yorku.ca/cds/lds.  In the interim, if you have any urgent questions that are not answered on our website, please do not hesitate to contact our receptionist at (416) 736-5383 who will direct you to the appropriate person.

Please note that students enrolled at Glendon College need to contact Counselling & Disability Services, Glendon Site at (416) 487-6709.

 

We are looking forward to working with you.

 

Regards,
