At GGC, we follow the Regents' Center for Learning Disorders (RCLD) Guidelines and Criteria. A full psychological evaluation is required for Attention Deficit Disorder, Acquired Brain Injury, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Learning Disabilities.
Forms are available online for medical conditions (PDF) and certain mental health (PDF) disabilities such as anxiety and panic disorders, mood disorders, personality disorders. Please note that the forms should be filled out completely and must include a person's current functioning and limitations. The forms must be completed by a professional in the specialty area for the disability. The forms may be also be picked up in Disability Services.
For students who are hard of hearing or deaf, documentation must include an audiogram, a statement on official letterhead describing functional limitations, deficits and recommendations signed by the professional licensed in the field.
For students who are blind or have visual impairments, a vision test is required with a statement on official letterhead describing functional limitations, deficits and recommendations signed by the professional licensed in the field.
If it is unclear to the appropriateness of documentation for LD, TBI, ADHD, psychiatric or Asperger’s syndrome, the information provided to the Office of Disability Services may be sent to RCLD for review and recommendations.
