FLEX testing is open to all high school students who meet the requirements of the program including students with disabilities. More than 220 disabled students have participated in FLEX over the program’s history, including 4 from Turkmenistan.
The next FLEX testing cycle for the 2018-2019 school year will likely begin in October of 2017, after the Ministry of Education of Turkmenistan provides permission for the program.
