What Types of ADHD Accommodations Exist?
Several types of testing accommodations exist for those with ADHD. You may receive a new testing time, a new testing location, extra testing time, or a modified exam format.
New Testing Time
Some students can't handle sitting in the same class as so many others while they're test-taking. The others can be a distraction. You may receive a new testing time instead. You can take it at lunch or during a free period.
New Testing Location
The location you're in can also prove to be a distraction. Whether it's because of the others or due to your proximity to the window and beauty outside it, moving you to a new testing location can help. You'll still take the test at the same time as the other students, but you may be permitted to take it in another, quieter room.
Extra Testing Time
Perhaps the quickness of the test is the problem. Due to your frequent mind wandering, you may need a longer interval to complete the test than others. Permitting extra time can give you the chance to answer more questions.
Modified Exam Format
A modified exam format may also help. Multiple-choice and true-or-false questions are a better choice for ADHD students than long-written paragraphs.
We understand the challenges of having special needs or caring for a person who requires special attention. Here at DoNotPay, we’ll make sure your ADHD accommodations are taken into consideration and granted by the testing center.
Which Documents Can Prove My Diagnosis?
You'll need proof of your diagnosis to receive ADHD accommodations. You may need to show:
- A medical diagnosis made by your doctor
- A diagnosis indicated by the school
Certain facilities may require a specific piece of documentation. They may need to specifically see a report that indicates:
- The age you received your diagnosis
- Some history of your diagnosis
- Relevant medical history
- The current impact your condition has on your day-to-day activities
How Do I Apply for ADHD Accommodations Myself?
Depending on where you're taking the test at, you may have a different method for applying for accommodations. Most students in school can simply ask their teacher or administrator to get the compromise they need for a better test solution. In some cases, however, you might need to apply through an online portal or with an account.
If you're unsure of who to ask, you should always start by contacting the agency who administers the test or the place you'll be taking it. Call or email to ask about their procedures for making requests on testing days and follow what they tell you.
Accommodation Request Procedure
Although every facility will have its own rules and regulations for making requests, you can expect some similar aspects in the steps of the procedure:
- Submit your request with the appropriate documentation.
- Wait for a response.
- Accept the response and learn how to utilize it OR appeal the decision.
- If appealing the decision, wait for a secondary response, which could take up to 6 weeks in many cases.
