Testing Individuals with Disabilities Policy

In accordance with Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the American Board of
Orthodontics (ABO) will provide reasonable accommodations, including appropriate auxiliary
aids, to examinees with disabilities, and will ensure that its examinations are administered in
facilities that are accessible to individuals with disabilities or that alternative accessible
arrangements are made. An examinee must provide ABO with acceptable medical or other
documentation of the disability and recommended accommodations (which may include
evidence of past modifications, accommodations, or auxiliary aids or services received in similar
testing situations) at least 90 days in advance of the examination date. Requests that require a
fundamental alteration of the purpose and nature of the examination will not be accommodated.
