Services for Students with Disabilities

Definition

The current version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) states that "the essential feature of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that interferes with functioning or development." (p. 61). 

Documentation

Please send in your testing/report that was generated regarding your impairment/diagnosis; ideally we would like a Psychoeducational and/or a Neuropsychological Test that was completed within the last 5 years (using adult testing measures only). If you do not have a psychological evaluation, your treatment provider will need to fill out a Disability Verification Form

See the Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Criteria.

How to Register with SSD

The completed verification form can be sent to us one of the following ways:

  • Faxed to (734) 936-3947
  • Emailed to ssdoffice@umich.edu
  • Brought to our office at G-664 Haven Hall

Once our office receives the paperwork you will receive an email confirmation and be assigned a disability coordinator. You will be asked to contact your disability coordinator to set up a meeting.

During the initial meeting, the registration paperwork will be done. Your disability coordinator will determine your eligibility for services and identify reasonable and appropriate academic accommodations.

Please note that University Policy is two weeks’ prior notice for any academic accommodation.
