Great comment from Morning.

And please don’t forget that it will be much easier to get extra time for SAT and college exams if you hold onto this accommodation now.

Consider writing this provision in a flexible way, such as “offer alternate location”.

You have to go back to the need. Why does he need extra time, less distraction, quiet test setting, etc? With that being said, if the student is older and in middle school, there is a self awareness of “not wanting to get pulled out” and to stay with peers in testing situations. Yes, for some students–it is embarrassing to get pulled out. They don’t like it. It may not be fair to him or the other students if he is still trying to finish a test in a room with mostly other students who are finish with their tests/ quizzes. Such could be a distraction. Is your son advocating for a change in accommodation? This may be a good time to sit down with the case manager and him and explain the need and logic behind the accommodation(s). Do they still make sense for his needs?
