Implementation of an updated ASD Verification Form
The departmental criteria and associated verification form in the EAP category of Autism Spectrum Disorder have been updated to reflect the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fifth edition (DSM-5). This form must be used for verifications submitted from 7 February 2014.
Diagnoses signed by a specialist on or before 7 February 2014 on Part B of the previous ASD verification form will be eligible to be submitted for verification as evidence that Criterion 1 is met. All other parts of the verification request including Criterion 2 information and the Part C Principal's request must be completed on the new form.
