Testing and Educational Accommodations

Disability Independence Group assists persons with learning or other disabilities in obtaining accommodations for standardized examinations or for the educational curriculum.  Disability Independence Group works with our client to gather the appropriate documentation  and request an appropriate accommodation.   The optimal time to requesting and obtaining accommodations is for post high school standardized tests, such as the SAT or the ACT.   If the accommodations are obtained for these tests, there is often no need for reassessment of subsequent evaluation for higher education or other post-graduate or professional standardized testing.

In addition to assisting during the accommodation process, Disability Independence Group also handles appeals of decisions denying testing or educational accommodations.
