Mobility Disability

Mobility Disorders

Mobility disorders refer to conditions that limit a person’s coordination or ability to move. Some mobility disorders are congenital while others are the result of illness or physical injury. The functional abilities and limitations resulting from the disorder will vary from individual to individual.

Specific documentation requirements for mobility disorders include the following:

  • All general documentation guidelines listed in the ‘Guidelines for Disability Documentation’ tab on the left-hand side.
  • Documentation should reflect data collected within three to five years of the request for services unless the condition is of a permanent and non-varying nature. However, if additional accommodations are requested due to changes in functional limitations, updated documentation may be requested.
  • A diagnosis consistent with the most recent DSM/ICD, if appropriate.
  • Description of the;
    • History, current symptoms, and severity of the disorder
    • Expected progression or stability of the disorder
    • Current functional limitations impacting the student in the academic setting

* A history of accommodations does not in itself warrant the provision of similar accommodations at UNA. The final determination of appropriate and reasonable accommodations rests with the decision of the university.
