I can think of a few things that might help, as far as accommodations go. The disabilities office probably knows an awful lot more about what they can and can't do than the dean does -- they deal with it daily, the dean may never have had any direct contact with the practical side of disability assistance.

It's worth going in to chat about it. There's likely not much that can be done about attendance, but most of the rest of it can probably be mitigated with some sort of assistance.

By the way, what about dropping one of the classes for this term? Would that be possible for you?
