  • Students are required to participate in the interactive process.  During this meeting, students should be prepared to discuss:
    • Requested services, supports and accommodations
    • Services and accommodations used in the past
    • Any impairments and how they affect/impact daily functioning; specifiically within an academic setting
    • Any impairments and how they limit access to learning, and engagement within various environments
    • Current medications and how they affect/impact daily functioning; specifiically within an academic setting 
**Information that is provided by public and private special education programs (e.g., IEP, 504 Plan, Social History, Special Education Eligibility) may be helpful, but they generally do not have enough information to support registering as an adult with a disability.
