Facilities Provided at ACT Testing Locations for Disabled Candidates:
The ACT authorities keep in mind that the disabled candidate must be provided with convenient locations for the test. Before asking for the locations, the disabled candidate will have to submit all the required documents so that their request could be processed.
In a few test centers the disabled candidates will be provided with accommodation, which will include a special room which will be accessible to a wheelchair so that it becomes convenient for the wheelchair user to appear for the test. If the disabled candidates want to apply for centers with special facilities, then they will have to register for such a center beforehand.
In a few cases, the test locations might allow the disabled candidates some extra time to complete the test which includes the breaks in it. This will provide the disabled candidates with extra time only when they'll get all the required documents submitted and will be granted permission. Thus the ACT test centers provide a wide range of services to the disabled candidates who have enrolled for the test.
A diabetic candidates will be permitted to eat snacks. Centers will provide a candidate who is suffering from hearing disabilities with an interpreter to convert the instructions that will be spoken out into sign language.
Documents that Should be Deposited at the Center
In the registration form for applying for a particular location they will have to fill up their name, phone number, postal address, the date of the test including the month and the year along with the test option i.e. whether they want to appear for ACT alone or also for ACT plus writing. They will have to explain their disability with complete details and mention the type of accommodation that they want to apply for so that the arrangements could be made at the proper time.
The documents which they will have to present should include the documents issued from their school stating the type of accommodation that was allotted to them at school so that similar arrangements could be made at the location. The request for the special accommodation must be mailed to the authorities before the deadline so that arrangements could be made at the test location at the proper time.
It is best to inform the authorities well in advance as the test center wont provide the candidates with accommodation on the spot.
All the test locations must be well equipped with all the facilities to be offered to the students and you must also make it a point to follow the rules and regulations specified so that the test goes off smoothly.
