    If you have a child with a learning disability, psychological disorder or physical disability, they WILL need extra time and special accommodations on the SAT or ACT. Don’t feel badly about asking for it! These tests are hard enough to tackle effectively, so those students  that need some extra time deserve it! Kudos to you for starting early to ensure they have this important element handled before the testing date nears.

    To actually apply for extra accommodations check out these links:

    ACT Special Accommodations information

    A couple of things to remember:  The deadline for applying is roughly four weeks before the test.  BUT, it takes much longer to be granted the accommodation so you must start early on this process.  The ACT is notorious for being tough on granting special accommodations.  The SAT isn’t much better but the ACT will require a lot more work.

    You also need to make sure you have the proper documentation before you apply. If you don’t have your student’s disabilities documented, you won’t be able to get the special accommodations.  That’s why it’s so important to start early.
    Good luck!
