Documentation should include the following information:
1. A clear statement of the medical diagnosis.
2. Current impact of the condition including any physical limitations that may interfere with the student's functioning in an academic setting.
3. Description of current symptoms.
4. Impact of any medications prescribed that may interfere with academic functioning.
5. Expected duration of disabling condition.
