Physical Disability Documentation


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

Specific documentation requirements for mobility disorders include the following:

  • General documentation guidelines listed in Appendix D of the USG Academic & Student Affairs Handbook.
  • Description of the history, current symptoms, and severity of the disorder.
  • Description of the expected progression or stability of the disorder.
  • Description of the current functional limitations impacting academic performance resulting from the disorder.

This is the criteria established by the Georgia Board of Regents.
