When I went back to school, it was a big part of moving out because I lived in the dorms at DePaul, and so, which was helpful because it was accessible, and also there were other students around, and it was great to be right on campus and in the city and not at home. All universities a have disability services office. And, there's all sorts of accommodations— people take notes, I had a PA who'd come to class with me— but teachers are willing to make accommodations—they'll move the classroom, or whatever. For taking tests, I would dictate them to my computer and the professor was always okay with it or I could email stuff in, so it was much easier than you would think.
