ABCN Policy for Breastfeeding Parents

The American Board of Clinical Neuropsychology understands and values the importance of a parent’s decision to breastfeed a child. In support of our candidates taking the Written and Oral Examinations, ABCN will work with the exam sites to approve and communicate accommodations for nursing parents.

Specifically, ABCN will grant up to 30 additional minutes for a break to express breast milk, with additional time consideration made in special circumstances.


  • Access to a private space, which is not a restroom, with an electrical outlet.
  • Access to a designated space within the exam site to store needed items and equipment.

Please note:

Requests should be submitted in writing to ABCN no later than 90 days prior to the applicant’s exam window.

For written exams, private space is provided on a first come, first served basis and is subject to space availability.  There is more flexibility to obtain a private space at the oral exams.

Children and/or visitors are not allowed at exam locations for any reason.

Refrigeration is not provided.
