I would definitely think so. Do you have a 504 or IEP in place? What the psych recommends should go into your plan. If you need something NOW, or you don't have a plan, then you could probably just call your psych's office and see what they can do to get you out of that part of the class requirements. You may need to talk to your counselor to find out what is needed and accepted on your school's end. Definitely pursue it though and see what you can do, other than take a crash course in anxiety during public speaking.
