Americans with Disabilities Act (A.D.A.) Policy Considerations

PSIA-AASI is committed to providing anyone with a disability with access to clinics and assessments.

The Americans with Disabilities Act defines an individual with a disability as a person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, a person who has a history or record of such an impairment, or a person who is perceived by others as having such an impairment.

If you feel you have a disability and want to seek a reasonable accommodation during the testing process, let us know ahead of the assessment so we can work together to create, if possible, the accommodation which will allow you to take the assessment under conditions that maintain safety for all involved.

To seek an accommodation, contact the PSIA-AASI region hosting the event at least four weeks before the clinic or assessment and notify them of your request for an accommodation in writing.

PSIA-AASI may seek medical or other guidance to address the most appropriate accommodation, so please be prepared with this information if applicable.

Please Note:

PSIA-AASI doesn’t have to provide an accommodation if doing so will cause undue hardship or compromise the safety of anyone involved in the examination process. Undue hardship means significant difficulty or expense, significant disruption of the association, or a change to the basic nature of the fundamental skills being tested.

If an accommodation will cause undue hardship, PSIA-AASI may determine if there is another accommodation that is less burdensome, safer, and/or less expensive.
