ETS is committed to providing reasonable accommodations to test takers with disabilities, and the documentation provided by evaluators is vital to the process of determining what reasonable accommodations are for an individual test taker.
Documentation is reviewed in-house to ensure that all necessary information is present prior to sending the documentation to members of our panel of outside experts for a full review and decision. It is of utmost importance that the documentation you provide for your client/patient includes all of the information outlined in our guidelines.
See detailed Documentation Guidelines:
- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Blindness/Low Vision
- Deaf/Hard of Hearing
- Intellectual Disabilities
- Learning Disabilities
- Physical Disabilities and Chronic Health Conditions
- Psychiatric Disabilities
- Traumatic Brain Injury
For your convenience, the above pages (with the exception of ADHD, Deaf/Hard of Hearing and Intellectual Disabilities) also include a quick reference guide for the documentation policy statements. These provide a summary of each statement and some basic guidelines for gathering documentation specific to that disability or condition.
