There are concessions for children with special needs, however, you have to be able to prove that there's a need for the concessions (one of the examples I've heard is, say, your child is dyslexic or has ADHD, but is in mainstream classes and "holding their own" with no sort of IEP, etc, then no, they aren't going to get any concessions). However, there is a process where you can request special concessions. Here's the link that will explain the process and how to go about requesting them.

I have a friend who is a high school special ed teacher. They do make accommodations for students with special needs. Speak with your child's guidance counselor

I don't believe the actual test is modified, but yes accomodations can be made. Some may require the test be read aloud to them. Some may need to do the test on a computer over pencil and paper, etc.
