Taking the SAT and ACT with the proper accommodations can level the assessment playing field for students with learning disabilities and medical needs. But needing and getting accommodations are two very different things. Amy and Mike invited educator Wendy Hayes to outline the process for receiving testing accommodations.

  1. What is the best way to apply for testing accommodations?
  2. What accommodations are available?
  3. Are school counselors helpful in the application process?
  4. What is the optimal timeline for applying for accommodations?
  5. Can a denial of accommodations be appealed?
