Every year, thousands of students take the LSAT with special accommodations. These can range from the use of a braille or large-print test to the use of a reader, an amanuensis, a wheelchair-accessible test center, additional rest time between sections, or additional testing time. If you're considering requesting special accommodations for your LSAT examination, make sure that you know exactly what to do to make your request as smooth and efficient as possible.
There are many intricacies to obtaining accommodations while you take the LSAT, not the least of which is making sure your disability is documented and you complete LSAC's required Accommodations Request Packet well in advance of your test date. Many students find the process a little intimidating and hard to navigate.
With that in mind, LSAC has put together an animated demo walking students through the accommodations request process. This tutorial (found on the Accommodated Testing page of LSAC.org) provides a step-by-step guide to applying for accommodated testing, and was prepared jointly by LSAC's Communications and Accommodated Testing staff. Based on the questions that are most often asked, the animated screens walk users through completing the request process.
This is to be a multi-part tutorial. Part one specifically discusses completion of the Candidate and Evaluator Forms. Part two will show additional forms that some candidates use. Additional parts will become available as they are completed.
