Why is there a listing of "Other" on the application for accommodations? What does this mean?

August 6, 2021

The "Other" entry fields allow families to request accommodations or list disabling conditions beyond those listed on the application. If your student's accommodation or disability is represented by a selectable option, it is highly recommended that these be used instead. This is because any use of "Other" will automatically disqualify the student for Direct Access

All applications containing requests for "Other" testing accommodations will be considered and reviewed on a case-by-case basis. EMA may require additional time to work with testing locations to setup and provide uncommon or "other" testing accommodations. EMA will work diligently to provide all approved accommodations; however, certain "Other" accommodation requests may cause delays in testing so that we may procure the necessary facilities and staffing to meet your student's testing needs.
