  1. The nature and cause of the condition
  2. The current functional impact of the condition
  3. The onset and verification of the disabling condition should be no older than 60 days
  4. The expected duration of the condition
  5. The prognosis for recovery
  6. Rationale for any accommodations based on the functional impact of the condition
