Students wishing to register with the SAAC to receive reasonable accommodations should provide appropriate documentation from a regulated Quebec health care professional. Authorized professionals can include:
- a physician (medical)
- a psychologist or neuro-psychologist
- a speech therapist
- an optometrist
- an audiologist
- a guidance counsellor holding the appropriate training certificate issued by the professional order to which he or she belongs
- a nurse with the experience and training required by the Ordre des infirmières et infirmiers du Québec
Ideally, the document should contain a clearly stated diagnosis, as well as the name, signature and license number of the professional and the date of the evaluation.
Our Adapted Services Counsellors are unable to formally diagnose students.
