I'm part of a group with DDNOS. We consider ourselves median. I don't take full control of the body often, but I'm frequently in partial control, and that's been causing some problems.

I'm not entirely non-verbal, but I seem to be losing my ability to speak. I have to struggle to form words. I can't speak at a normal volume. I usually have trouble understanding people. However, I am able to write and read.

When I have partial control, the person who is in control with me also has difficulty speaking and understanding, although not nearly as much as I do alone. I am hoping that the only solution is not for me to stay in back, as this is our most comfortable and--before now--functional arrangement.

For instance, we are taking a Latin class at the local university. I used to be responsible for our attendance and participation in that class. Now I can hardly understand what the professor is saying, and when I am in partial control, the other group member also struggles. We got mixed up recently; we couldn't understand the professor and could hardly speak. Luckily, it didn't last for too long, but it proved to us that something was very wrong. Now all I can do is the homework.

Does anyone here have advice?

Thank you. I will see if I can type in that way. It would be helpful. And if necessary, we'll keep in mind the accommodations, as we do live in America.
