Accommodations Available for
High Stakes Testing
Students with ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities, High Functioning Autism, Dysgraphia, Test Anxiety, and other issues can qualify for test accommodations at school, college, university and on high stakes testing such as the College Boards, ACT, and others.
Do you run out of time for schoolwork and tests?
Do you have trouble getting your words down on paper? Do you get low test scores even when you know the material you are tested on? Are you distracted when testing, and scores do not show what you know? Do you get nervous and have your mind “blank out” when taking tests?
You might have a qualifying condition that would permit accommodations for exams in school and for “high stakes” testing such as College Board, ACT, etc.
Students with needs may be allowed additional time, extra breaks, a quieter setting, a scribe, larger print, and assistive technology, depending on their needs.
If you have a qualifying condition, accommodations testing may be the answer to underachieving.

What Our Students Say
While my autism isn’t severe, it was enough to prevent me from completing my ACT’s and crushing my hopes of college. After I was granted testing accommodations I was able to take the tests in a semi-isolated space that prevented me from experiencing what I call “my system overload”. Because of Dr. Simun, I’m on my way to college with hopes and dreams intact.
High school was so difficult for me. Even though I was diagnosed with ADD , I had no idea that Testing Accommodations were even a thing. I’m so glad I found Dr. Simun and her staff. Because of their work, I was able to qualify and get more time to finish my exams which resulted in a 22% increase in my score and acceptance letter from one or my “reach schools”. Thanks Dr. Simun!
