Although these disabilities are lifelong, the impact they have on current functioning changes over time. Therefore, their documentation needs to reflect the current status of their functional limitations and explain why they need the testing accommodations they requested. If documentation is more than 5 years old, it’s not current and needs to be updated. Note that the currency requirement may differ depending on their particular disability or disabilities. For example, for ADHD, the standard is generally 5 years. For psychiatric disorders, the generally accepted standard is an update that is not more than 12 months old, submitted with the underlying evaluation report. See Updating Documentation for LD/ADHD for more information.
