Accommodations for Test Takers with Disabilities and Health-related Needs

Testing Arrangements for Individuals with Disabilities or Health-related Needs

ETS is committed to serving test takers with disabilities and health-related needs by providing services and reasonable accommodations that are appropriate given the purpose of the test. Testing accommodations are available for test takers who meet ETS requirements.

Registration Procedures

The Bulletin Supplement for Test Takers with Disabilities or Health-related Needs contains procedures for requesting testing accommodations and registration forms. The Supplement should be used in conjunction with the information in The Praxis Series® Information Bulletin.

Note: All test takers requesting any accommodations must register by mail through ETS Disability Services and have their accommodations approved before their test can be scheduled. Your request should be submitted as early as possible, especially if you are requesting an alternate test format. Documentation review takes approximately six weeks once your request and complete paperwork have been received. If additional documentation must be submitted, it can be another six weeks from the time the new documentation is received until the review is complete. Test takers requesting accommodations cannot register using the online registration system.

Though you must register by mail, you should still create a My Praxis account to view scores online and order additional score reports.

If you have a health-related need that requires you to bring equipment, beverages, or snacks into the testing room, or to take extra or extended breaks, you must follow the accommodations request procedures in the Bulletin Supplement for Test Takers with Disabilities or Health-related Needs.
