      What helps me is being able to eat snacks in class and being able to leave/move when wanted/needed. It makes it feel like nothing is being forced away or onto me

      The following are typical classroom, exam, and assignment accommodations that may be recommended for students with a psychiatric disability: CLASSROOM ACCOMMODATIONS -Preferential seating, especially near the door to allow leaving class for breaks. -Assigned classmate as volunteer assistant. -Beverages permitted in class. -Prearranged or frequent breaks. -Tape recorder use. -Notetaker or photocopy of another student's notes. -Early availability of syllabus and textbooks. -Availability of course materials (lectures, handouts) on disk. -Private feedback on academic performance. EXAMINATION ACCOMMODATIONS -Exams in alternate format (e.g., from multiple choice to essay; oral, presentation, role-play, or portfolio). -Use of assistive computer software (e.g., Optical Character Recognition, allowing scanned text to be read aloud by the computer's sound card; or speech recognition for converting the spoken word to printed word on the computer screen). -Extended time for test taking. -Exams individually proctored, including in the hospital. -Exam in a separate, quiet, and non-distracting room. -Increased frequency of exams. ASSIGNMENT ACCOMMODATIONS -Substitute assignments in specific circumstances. -Advance notice of assignments. -Permission to submit assignments handwritten rather than typed or vice versa. -Written assignments in lieu of oral presentations or vice versa. -Assignments completed in dramatic formats (e.g., demonstration, role-play, and sculpture). -Assignment assistance during hospitalization. -Extended time to complete assignments. Choose whichever things would be beneficial to YOU. These are examples of what I could find. However, not all requested accommodations are "reasonable" to some, so they may not do some of these things, but some others they may. I hope this helps. My personal recommendation is going to a different quiet area when taking a test or doing an important assignment.

        @Creator those are great ideas thank you 🤗. I think my diagnosis interferes most when it's to loud or to quiet but my PTSD has gotten worse since I've been in a class last. And I so used to being in the safety and controlled environment of my room. But obviously I cant do that anymore haha.
