ADA Accommodations

Important Information and Resources for Members

To assist member boards with decisions related to testing candidates with disabilities, FSBPT created the FSBPT Guide to Testing Accommodations. It provides the fundamentals regarding testing accommodations policies.

The guide is not intended to provide legal advice or recommendations. Case law and agency regulations will continue to clarify and refine the Americans with Disabilities Act.


The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) prohibits discrimination based on disability. It covers all agencies that offer or require tests for employment, licensing, certification, or education.

FSBPT and its members need to understand and comply with the ADA as it relates to approving and administering accommodations for the NPTE®.
