I must say I agree with Racer and here's why:

When I first went to talk to Disability services I hadn't been diagnosed with a learning disability, but I had all the mental health disability stuff. I turned down the accommodations they were willing to offer (such as extended test taking time and quiet locations). The next year I accepted them and it made a HUGE difference. My grades have since gone up. For me, it was the anxiety that goes along with tests and even just the noise of other people taking the tests distracting me.

The best part of disability assistance at school is that you don't have to tell anyone but the adviser what your problems are, so most of the time you don't get the whole stigma thing.

They may not be able to do a whole lot about the attendance thing, but they may be able to help you in other ways. Would having a tutor help -- someone who could help keep you on top of your work?

Good luck. It's not always easy, but I've been told it's worth it in the end ;-)
