The Real Estate Institute of New England is committed to providing access for all individuals with disabilities. We will provide reasonable and appropriate learning and testing accommodations to individuals with documented disabilities who demonstrate a need for learning and testing accommodations. Special learning and/or testing accommodations may include a separate testing room, extra testing time and/or a reader. Learning and testing accommodations will be considered on a case-by-case basis. No single type of test accommodation (e.g. extra time) would necessarily be appropriate for all individuals. Simply demonstrating that an individual meets diagnostic criterion for a disorder does not mean that the person is automatically entitled to test accommodations. All candidates who are requesting learning and/or testing accommodations because of a disability must provide appropriate documentation of their condition and how it is expected to affect their ability to learn or take a test under standard conditions. This may include additional supporting documentation from the professional who diagnosed the condition.
Requests for special accommodations should be made, in writing, to the Director of the Real Estate Institute of New England.
