Documentation for Accommodations on the ACT

Transition

Page 6 of the policy manual for requesting ACT accommodations lists separate documentation for hearing and visual impairment.  I'm curious if anyone has navigated this with a student with Combined Vision and Hearing Loss who took the ACT? Did you make a functional impact statement related to the combination of impairments even thought they are treated as two separate things in the policy?

Megan,
i worked with an individual a few years ago that presented medical documentation of the Vision loss and the Hearing loss along with the request for alternative format. There was also a Psycho-educational evaluation that listed recommended accommodations. A supporting letter from the VR counselor (CRC) was sent but was likely not needed. The student received extra time and a distraction free environment. The effect of the combined loss was used to document the functional impact.
