Preparing for the
college entrance exams SAT and ACT is challenging, even for students that are
able to achieve success in the classroom naturally. But not every student
learns the same way, and students with diagnosed learning disabilities require
a learning environment and program that meets their specific needs. In many
cases, when students with certain learning disabilities are taught using
methods that match their needs, those students thrive and achieve success.
Preparing for the SAT
or ACT exam should be no different.
Specialized Prep (SpecializedPrep.org) provides a college entrance exam prep
program for students with learning disabilities like ADD and ADHD. The program
specifically prepares students with learning disabilities to take either the
SAT exam or ACT exam.

1.Using a diagnostic
assessment exam, we determine which test the student will perform best on
2.Results from the
diagnostic are reviewed and a recommendation is made
3.Students take either
the SAT or ACT prep class, which is custom designed for students with learning
disabilities. Classes are held online and are conducted live with audio and
4.Upon completion of the
classes, students take a full SAT or ACT practice exam
5.Results from the
practice exam are analyzed and a diagnostic report is produced
6.Finally, the student
receives two hours of one-on-one private SAT or ACT tutoring online. The
private tutor works from the diagnostic report to address any areas of
weakness, ensuring that points are added to the students score.

reports and private tutoring, students also receive the books and materials
they will need. There is nothing additional to purchase.
