I am going into my 2nd year of studies and I feel I could benefit from a different "exam environment,"(lower stress atmosphere, fewer people, etc). However it appears that the only way I could do this is through my school's disability service centre.
I saw my neurosurgeon once, and that was almost 4 years ago. I'm now 18 and it was a paediatric surgeon so I don't even know if she can help me anymore. In order to be considered by my school as having a disability I need the documentation to prove it. I have the MRI results stating I have Chiari, but it doesn't include any specifics relating to "how it would affect my studies."
I sometimes feel that my Chiari does affect my studies, but is this just in my head? Or can Chiari really be having a negative impact on my school?
How do I go about getting the proper documentation required?
That being "include a clear description of the student's functional limitations that arise from the disability or health condition specific to studying at university."
