Be sure to include complete contact information (student and parent names; home, work and cell telephone numbers and/or home mailing address; campus of choice) when submitting documentation. Documentation can be mailed or faxed to your chosen campus (Brenham, Bryan, Schulenburg, Sealy). Call the Brenham office for campus contact information at (979) 830-4157.

Once your documentation has been reviewed and accepted, you will be contacted to schedule an intake appointment. You will also be contacted if further documentation is needed. No intake appointment will be made until documentation has been received and approved.

What is "appropriate supporting documentation?"

"Appropriate supporting documentation" would be, for example, testing results form your high school diagnostician or licensed psychologist indicating the type of test(s) given, the test scores, and the interpretation of the test scores, and/or a letter from your medical doctor, physical/speech/occupational therapist, audiologist, ophthalmologist, or other licensed person appropriate to make the diagnosis indicating the diagnosis or type of disability.

Documentation must show current functioning of the student, usually dated within 1-5 years of diagnosis. Please call the Brenham office to request specific information on documentation guidelines.
