Certifier professional qualifications depend on the nature of the disability. If the reading disability is the result of a learning disability a qualified certifier could be a school learning disability specialist, school psychologist, clinical psychologist, doctor of medicine or osteopathy.
In cases of blindness, visual handicap, or physical handicap, certification may be made by doctors of medicine or osteopathy, ophthalmologists, optometrists, registered nurses, therapists, professional staff of hospitals, institutions, and public or welfare agencies. In the absence of any of these a professional librarian may make the certification.
Indicate the nature of the disability that prevents the applicant reading standard print effectively.
____ Blindness / Visual
I certify the existence of a physical basis of the visual, perceptual or other physical disability limiting the applicant’s ability to effectively use standard print, and that I have the professional qualifications to make such a certification.
