Accommodations Handbook

Medical Devices

  • If your student has a medical device that must be used during testing, enter it under an “other” accommodation.
  • Students must be able to use any medical devices themselves.
  • Students are responsible for providing all necessary medical items/equipment on test day. If you have concerns regarding your student’s ability to test on a specified test date due to health concerns or if you are unsure whether you need to apply for testing accommodations for your student, please contact us at as soon as possible.
  • Any student with medically-based testing accommodation needs may be required to test individually with their own test proctor, depending upon the nature of the medical condition or impairment and the likelihood that the student may distract or negatively affect other students in the testing environment.

If you have any questions or concerns about your family's ability to provide anything needed for your student to complete testing, please contact EMA immediately and well in advance of your scheduled test date.
