LSAT accommodation previous tester

Here is an interesting theme from a few dozen phone calls: many people calling to say they have used the same person or clinic to test in grade school, high school and college and they got turned down with a long history of accommodations and don't understand why?

Clinical testing is WIDELY  available, clinical testing with Americans with Disability Act, legal presentation and organization of documents for accommodations (as required by LSAT, MCAT, GMAT, GRE, Bar and Medical Exams) is a speciality area that very few clinicians master or even begin to understand.  Accommodation testing written to ADA standards is a "must" that as a parent or as a patient you need to understand because the clinician may not know the difference and assume they can do their usual "psychoeducational" assessment to school standards. Be forewarned and look for an accommodation specialist for the LSAT that is a licensed Psychologist and knows the differences between ADA standards and Clinical standards. If you have to explain it to them than you are probably not going to get the report you need to receive accommodations if you qualify!
