For the student to qualify for services in the RDC, the Centre must be provided with proof of disability or medical condition from a doctor or a medical professional. The report must state that you are legally visually or physically disabled or have a medical condition that significantly limits functioning in one or more areas including but not limited to, reading, writing, travel or other activities of daily living.
