Traumatic Brain Injury

Primary Documentation

It is most helpful when students provide an evaluation report such as a psychoeducational assessment or a neuropsychological evaluation. Diagnostic reports should be completed by qualified professionals and should include the following information:

  • A clear diagnostic statement that describes the procedures or tests used to diagnose the condition
  • A statement reflecting current impact of the head injury on the student’s functioning
  • A summary of cognitive and achievement tests used and the evaluation results including standardized scores used to make the diagnosis
  • A summary of present residual symptoms that meet the criteria for diagnosis
  • Medical information relating to the student’s needs and the impact of any medication on the student’s ability to meet the demands of the academic environment
  • A statement of the functional impact or limitations of the disability on learning or other major life activities
