LSAT extended time accommodations deadline Friday

The LSAT accommodations deadline is on Friday and I still have people calling about having a comprehensive assessment and documentation for extended time either for a learning disability such as dyslexia or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD). I've sent out a few of my specially designed accommodations forms for new patients to help them gather documentation for the next administration of the LSAT. I always recommend to have them try taking the LSAT practice test under regular time conditions, than continue for another 50% (time and a half) with a different colored pen. They can add up the difference between the two scores and if it is significant, it is likely they will also have signficant scores for extended time accommodations on the LSAT.

LSAT Testing Accommodation Deadline

I've received a half dozen calls for LSAT accommodations this week with the deadline being this Friday. There is no way to do a comprehensive evaluation, obtain all of the documentation and put together a 20 page report in that amount of time. Several people I spoke with are going to take the test under regular conditions and they will be assessed by me after the LSAT administration so that the regular accommodation score can be used as partial evidence toward the need for additiona time on the LSAT or other accommodations such as a private room for ADHD. LSAT Documentation is very important to obtain LSAT accommodations for learning disabilities such as dyslexia, reading disorder, writing disorder, math disorder, learning disorder nos or ADHD accommodations. I've referred everyone back to to review the necessary documentation needed and to begin preparing for the next administration of the test.
