Testing Accommodations for Individuals with Disabilities: Research-Based Practice (Self-Study Webinar)

  • January 01, 2025



Psychologist Ben Lovett, Ph.D., discusses best practices for providing testing accommodations for individuals with disabilities.  People with disabilities are often given tests with modified administration conditions (e.g., additional time, a private testing location). Psychologists are often asked to make recommendations regarding accommodations on tests in a variety of contexts (e.g., classroom tests, admissions tests, certification tests). This webinar discusses the legal framework for determining eligibility for accommodations as well as research-based principles for making accommodations recommendations for children and adults with various disabilities. Examples focus on disabilities that psychologists diagnose (learning, cognitive, and psychiatric disabilities).

This course is offered as a self-study for 1.0 CE credit. Completion of an evaluation and post-test are required in order to receive credit.
