Evaluate documentation and determine appropriate accommodations with confidence!

Are you struggling to evaluate incomplete documentation and make difficult accommodations decisions for students with psychiatric disabilities? Don’t go it alone - The Disability Service Provider's Guide to Supporting Students with Psychiatric Disabilities is your complete resource for understanding and working with students with psychiatric disabilities.

Dr. Aaron Cohen, Disability Specialist and Licensed Clinical Psychologist at UC Berkeley, combines valuable reference tools with practical guidance so you can make the most informed decisions for serving your students. From common diagnoses and accommodations, to standardized models for evaluating outside documentation, you learn:

  • How to use Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders for the best interpretation of a diagnosis
  • What constitutes reasonable documentation, and when more is required
  • Why you should connect with students’ mental health professionals before determining accommodations
  • How medications and their side effects can affect academic performance
  • Support services that go beyond legal accommodations
  • Why coordinating your efforts with campus counseling staff benefits everyone involved

You also receive in-depth research on the barriers these students face on campus, summaries of recent court cases and OCR rulings, along with the full text of 15 must-know decisions.
