Determination of Eligibility and Documentation
Eligibility for services will be determined by one of the following means:
1. assessment by appropriate DSPS professional staff;
2. review of documentation provided by appropriate agencies, or certified or licensed professional, outside of DSPS;
3. in some instances, observation by DSPS professional staff with review by the DSPS coordinator.
DSPS professional staff, with review by the DSPS coordinator, may verify a student's disability based on documentation provided by an appropriate agency or certified professional capable of diagnosing the disability in question or documentation from agencies participating in interagency agreements with the state Chancellor's Office.
