SAT Test Prep And The Learning Different Student

As a SAT test prep company, Eureka Review is often asked about test accommodations and the SAT. What is the certification process? What are the different types of accommodations? How does test prep adjust for students with learning differences?
The final arbiter of whether or not your child will be eligible for accommodations is the College Board, the company that administers the SAT. We encourage parents and students to visit their website, www.collegeboard.com, to learn more about their policies regarding AD/HD, Learning Disabilities, and certain psychiatric conditions that impact academic functioning. Questions to consider include: Is there documentation at the school showing that the student has a learning difference that requires accommodations? Is there a record of accommodations for tests taken at school?
If the answer is yes, then you must fill out the Student Eligibility Form and submit it to College Board. Students must submit documentation demonstrating that it is difficult to learn and take tests in the traditional manner. The College Board reviews each request and determines eligibility.
The College Board has four types of accommodations that are possible:
� Presentation (e.g., large print; reader; Braille; Braille device for written responses; visual magnification; audio amplification; audiocassette; sign/oral presentations)
� Responding (e.g., verbal/dictated to scribe; tape recorder; computer without grammar/cut & paste features; large block answer sheet)
� Timing/scheduling (e.g., frequent breaks; extended time; multiple day; specified time of day)
� Setting (e.g., small group setting; private room; special lighting/acoustics; adaptive/special furniture/tools; alternative test site [with proctor present]; preferential seating)
At Eureka Review, our tutors have had great success working with students that qualify for accommodations and also those students whom are turned down. As a one-on-one, in-home tutoring program, we have the flexibility to monitor students� progress in order to adapt our curriculum to each student�s needs. Then we develop a specific, customized pace that allows students to progress on the timetable that is best for them.
Eureka Review also gives Extended Time Mock SAT Tests at various high schools. This lessens anxiety by having a no-stress simulation of the real event. Learning strategy and gaining confidence are two key factors where Eureka Review is able to help learning different students get into the college of their dreams.
Finally, we have found that some students, after taking an Extended Time Mock SAT with Eureka Review, believe the added length is actually a detriment. Some students don�t use the extra time, but find the longer day ruins their concentration and mental endurance is impacted. Therefore we recommend students try a practice test first in order to ensure they have the right approach for their specific testing abilities.
