Hello Ruth, my name is Derek Manners. I'm on the NABS board and am currently an intern at NFB legal for a few more days. We are putting a higher ed toolkit together and one of the subjects is high-stakes testing. We have a section on the College Board with contact info, process for getting accommodations, suggestions on how to go about the process (e.g. start the process early) etc.  

There's a letter Jill Green wrote for the College Board that outlines this stuff nicely and I'm wondering if you guys have something we can cite to and largely borrow from for ETS?  If it is just the general website, that's fine and I can do that but just thought I'd give you the chance to give us something better if it exists. 

Best wishes
Derek Manners

For those who don't know me, I'm the Assistant Director of the ETS Office of Disability Policy and work on (among other things) accommodations for test takers who are blind or have low vision.  I don't think I'm on the NABS meeting agenda, but I'll be there, and I'll also be around the hotel from Sunday evening through Tuesday afternoon.  In addition, this year my ETS colleague Morgan Murray, who now works with me on blindness issues, will also be at the Seminar on those days.
