LACTATION ACCOMMODATION: Courtesy accommodations for women who are lactating are available upon request. A request for lactation accommodations must include documented medical evidence from your child’s pediatrician or your obstetrician verifying your child’s reliance on breast milk and the child’s date of birth. List all accommodations you believe will be necessary on the day of the exam. Do not assume a particular accommodation will be granted if not listed in your request; be specific.

Accommodations may typically include:

*Most venues are not equipped with private lactation rooms or if provided, the lactation room is a considerable distance from the designated testing room. Therefore, in an effort to provide a private space located more conveniently to the test room, the lactation area may be temporary in design and structure.
