What is an accommodations approver?

An approver is a qualified individual who can affirm that valid documentation meeting our requirements is on file with their school or organization, and that the student is known to have a disability requiring testing accommodations.If the existing documentation on file with the approver is an IEP, 504, or formal private school documentation, the approver should be a practitioner or representative from your student’s current school (i.e. school psychologist, special education or 504 coordinator, school counselor, speech/language pathologist, occupational therapist, physical therapist, school administrator, learning specialist, social worker, etc.). If the approver will be attesting to other types of documentation, the approver should be an appropriate medical practitioner involved with the diagnosis, treatment, testing, or care of your student.
