Should I ask for accommodations under the ADA?

I know that this is ultimately my decision, but I am looking for other peoples' opinions/insight.

If you read the thread here: http://www.addforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=190375
you will see that I have resigned from my job do ADD.

I am teacher, so I will actually be working through the end of the school year, early June.

Although it is too late to save my job, I am still under a tremendous amount of stress, sometimes panic inducing.

As a teacher, do you think I should as for accommodations that might help reduce my stress over the next three months?

If so, do you have any idea what accommodations should I ask for?

Thank you.

Hi DP, Sorry, but nothing to directly address your OP, but this may prove helpful. Even if no long-term benefits for present position, it may help w/ targeting for next position or evaluating accommodations for the next position. HTH and GL, -LN

Re: Should I ask for accommodations under the ADA?

Does this mean you haven't disclosed yet?

I assume you would have to disclose in order to get accommodations. The risk of disclosure in your case is that word of your adhd would spread to other potential employers who knowing that information may not want to hire you.

If you got accommodations would you perform ok? The risk of diclosure should be weighed against whether you will suffer long term mental health damage if you don't get accommodations as well as if you don't start doing better (and that's assuming accommodations will help you perform decently) will potential employers find that out and will that hurt your chances at getting a new job.
