Accommodations for Persons with Disabilities
The ABR supports the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and makes reasonable accommodations in exam procedures for individuals with documented disabilities.
Candidates with disabilities may request modifications in the administration of an exam. Similarly, diplomates may request modifications in the administration of Online Longitudinal Assessment (OLA). The ABR will grant such requests unless modifications would place undue burden on the ABR or fundamentally alter the measurement of the knowledge and skills the exam is intended to assess.
Candidates/diplomates considering the need for modifications must submit an application form.
All required documentation must be submitted to the ABR no more than one year and no less than three months in advance of the exam date. Candidates anticipating the need for accommodations are encouraged to contact the ABR office well in advance to allow sufficient time for producing any required documentation–at least three months in advance of the exam date.
Failure to comply with this deadline will result in the candidate being scheduled without special accommodations.
