This session will explore issues related to testing accommodations for individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing or who have visual impairments.  It will examine the legal landscape, including applicable legislative and regulatory language, as well as recent litigation, addressing the issue of what are "reasonable accommodations" for such individuals.  It will also include discussion of available assistive technologies and the benefits, burdens, and risks associated with them.  The goal is to encourage the exploration of assistive technologies and other accommodations that will meet the legally mandated rights of individuals with disabilities without impacting the validity or reliability of the measurement obtained and without unduly burdening the testing entity.

Janet D. Carson, Consultant to Testing and Certifying Entities
Ruth Loew, Assistant Director, Office of Disability policy, Educational Testing Service
