Documentation Guidelines for Other Disabilities
Many specific disabilities not listed on this website are subtypes of disabilities that are listed. For instance:
- Dyslexia and dysgraphia are covered under learning disorders.
- Cerebral palsy and diabetes are covered under physical/medical disabilities.
- Autism diagnoses based on DSM-IV are covered under autism spectrum disorders.
To receive accommodations for College Board exams, students with disabilities must make a request to College Board’s Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD)—even if they have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), a 504 plan, or already receive those accommodations for school or state tests.
All requests should meet seven key criteria.
