Diagnosing Learning Disabilities & ADHD

ACT/SAT Accommodation Testing

Students with a documented disability (LD, Dyslexia, ADHD, or Dysgraphia) are eligible to receive accommodations on the SAT.

Some of the accommodations that are allowed include:
– Extended time (50%-100%)
– Extra/extended breaks
– Writer/Scribe for Writing Exam
– Accommodated answer sheet
– Reader
– Fewer items on a page
– Use of highlighter
– Colored overlays
– Small group setting
– Private room

How do you receive accommodations?

SAT requires you to apply for accommodated testing separate from your regular registration. There are several guidelines that must be met in order to receive accommodations. Some of those guidelines include:

– Have a disability that necessitates accommodated testing
– Documentation of the disability that is within the last 5 years
– Receive and use the requested accommodations, due to the disability, on school-based tests for four school months

 ACT Accommodations

ACT also offers accommodations to students who have a documented disability. Their accommodation program looks a little different. Accommodations offered at a “National Test Center” include:

– Large type test booklet (18pt font)
– Printed copy of spoken instructions
– Preferential seating
– 50% more extended time

The following accommodations require you
to find a Special Testing Center in your area:
– More than 50% extended time
– Reader or require Braille format
– Computer or scribe for writing test
– Alternate response mode (oral responses)

How do you receive accommodations for the ACT?

ACT requires that you first register for your desired ACT date, then send in a separate request for accommodations. Like SAT, there are guidelines that must be met in order to be considered for an accommodated test:

– Have a disability that necessitates accommodated testing
– Documentation of the disability that is within the last 3 years
– Currently receive and use the requested accommodation
