Assistance for People with Disabilities

For examinees with documented physical, mental, emotional, attention deficit, or specific learning disabilities, accommodations give equal access to GED testing.

If you believe you may have a disability that could keep you from taking the GED Tests in the way they are usually given, you might be entitled to receive reasonable testing accommodations.


Accommodations are available for people with

  • Physical disabilities (such as blindness, low vision, deafness, impaired hearing, mobility impairments)
  • Learning disabilities (such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, receptive aphasia, written language disorder)
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
  • Psychological disabilities (such as bipolar disorder, Tourette's syndrome)

Accommodations may include

  • Audiocassette edition (with large-print reference copy)
  • Braille or large-print editions
  • Vision-enhancing technologies
  • Calculator for both math sections
  • Use of a talking calculator
  • Use of a scribe
  • Extended time/supervised extra breaks
