In reply to medical accomodations in school?, posted by CareBear04 on January 18, 2008, at 21:08:37

Hey CareBear,

Have you tried talking with your Disabilities office on campus? They might have some ideas of what kind of accommodations you could receive. And if your pdoc is willing to give you a note, that will most likely be all the official documentation you need. Here this information is kept confidential, and my profs never know beyond what I tell them about my disability. They get this nice letter from the Disabilities Office saying that they have a student, Gee, in their class who has a Disability and these are the accommodations we are asking for. I have extended time on tests and a seperate testing location away from everyone else. I know this may not apply to your situation, but this little change has helped me A TON!
And while mine isn't medical, most profs are WAY more than accommodating once they find out that there is some kind of disability.

So what kind of accommodations do you think would help you?

Could you drop one class? Would that help relieve some stress? Could you get credit for what you did in the first half of the year and just pick up where you left off next year? Maybe withdrawing from the class with a cause may allow you to do this? I don't know. I'd really say go talk to the disabilities advisor and see how they can help you.

I hope this helps somewhat. I know it helped me a TON and has brought my marks up over a letter grade!

Good luck!
