OI Student Referral

  • Directions for new referrals to OI

    1. Fill out the CRIS Student Referral Form and print. 

    2. Gather all required documents associated with the services being requested. For example, to enroll a student for OI services and/or equipment, a copy of the current OI eligibility statement is required. If an OI eligibility for a student is pending, we advise you to wait until eligibility is established to refer to CRIS. We are unable to enroll students who are referred without a copy of the OI eligibility statement.

    3. Obtain the signature of the special education director (or designee) in your district.

    4. Fax or mail the completed referral to CRIS

    AAC Services for Students who do not have an OI eligibility

    Our AAC specialists have a primary responsibility to serve students with an OI eligibility. Limited AAC consultative support may be available for students who do not have an OI eligibility but receive regional services under another eligibility category. This support may be provided by phone, email, video-conference, or face-to-face meeting at CRIS offices. To request this type of support, contact a member of the OI/AT team.  

    We are not able to provide equipment and/or services for students who do not have an eligibility of Orthopedic Impairment (OI) or another low incidence disability (VI, HI, DB, TBI, ASD).
