What is an 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.
- The approver listed on a student’s application for accommodations is recommended to be a practitioner or representative from the student’s current or previous school (ex. school psychologist, special education coordinator, counselor, school administrator, therapist, learning specialist, teacher, etc.).
- The responsibility for maintaining these records varies from school to school, thus a specific role or job title is not required; however, this professional should be able to attest to the validity of your student’s disability and their resultant testing needs.
