WHICH FORMS TO USE?
There are many forms included below, but you do not need to use them all. Most people use just the first two forms: physical and mental. Some people use just one: physical or mental. If you have not been diagnosed with mental illness, the mental form can still be helpful if you experience any problems with memory, focus, or concentration (because of pain, fatigue, medication side effects, neurological problems, etc).
WHO SHOULD FILL OUT THE FORM?
Physical disabilities: It is most helpful to have at least one form filled out by an MD or a DO or another doctor who is an acceptable medical source. You can also collect more than one form from more than one practitioner.
Mental health: It is most helpful to have a form filled out by a licensed psychologist or psychologist. If this is not possible, then a form from an MD or another doctor who is an acceptable medical source. You can also collect additional forms from therapists, counselors, Social Workers, etc.
