There are many different types of disabilities and many kind of accommodations. Most individuals with disabilities fall into one of the following categories:
- Learning disabilities
- Visual impairment
- Mental illness or psychological disability
- Attention deficit disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Brain or head injury
- Medical conditions
- Other disabilities
The accommodations are provided to ensure that all individuals are treated fairly on all evaluations.
Accommodations may include, but are not limited to:
- Extended testing time
- Additional rest breaks
- Low noise testing environment
- Enlarged font on the exam question and answer papers
- Allowing a medical device in the examination room, such as inhaler or diabetic equipment
Accommodation requests are assessed on a case-by-case basis to ensure equal opportunity for individuals to fully demonstrate their qualifications without altering the nature of the level of qualification being assessed. We consider each case after carefully reviewing the submitted documentation; however, submitting a request does not guarantee receiving accommodation.
In order to request an accommodation, submit all of the requested documentation and information at least four weeks prior to the examination date.
