In order to invoke the rules around disability laws, you have to have been determined to be disabled by whatever physical or mental problem(s) you have.

Accommodation under the ADA, you will have to disclose the condition(s) to the employer. You also have to know that you may have an idea solution in mind, but the employer is not obligated to accommodate as you wish; only at the minimal level.

This is really an HR issue, but disclosing it to HR could present its own problems.
