Subject: The G.E.D. test & accommodations
Many of my students are at the high school level and I try to encourage them to take the General Equivalency Diploma Test in lieu of a high school diploma.
I am surprised that there are no special accommodations for the G.E.D. test, according to our teacher that works with the program preparing kids to take it.
Does anyone have any information re accommodations for LD students taking the G.E.D.?

WRONG! Of course they provide accommodations.
Sorry for shouting.
Go to this page for GED accommodations info:
"Every candidate for the GED Tests should have a fair opportunity to demonstrate his or her knowledge and skills under appropriate test conditions. For some candidates, a disability may interfere with their ability to fully demonstrate what they know under standard testing conditions.
Learning disabilities, for example, can affect your ability to store, process, and/or produce information. They can also affect your ability to read, write, speak, do math, and socialize. Many physical disabilities can affect a person’s ability to sit for long periods of time, to write using a pencil and paper, or to read normal-sized print.
Accommodations in testing are available for adults with documented physical disabilities as well as learning disabilities, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and emotional or psychological disabilities. Each request is considered on an individual basis.
Accommodations may include:
Audiocassette edition (with large-print reference copy)
Learning Disabilities and/or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
Physical Disabilities and Emotional or Psychological Disabilities (Form SA-001)
If you need to find out more about learning disabilities, how to get tested for a learning disability, or what resources are available, click here."
