Does anyone know if I can ask for accommodations that aren’t listed on a resource such as Ask Jan?
I normally crochet during work meetings in addition to taking notes because it’s a simple, repetitive task that isn’t disruptive and helps me focus. Today a woman in a meeting called me out for crocheting while the CEO was talking (because I had asked a follow up question that this woman didn’t like) and when someone else stood up for me and I tried to explain why I crochet in meetings, the HR director stepped in and said that she would decide when something was inappropriate.
Can I formally ask for the ability to do non-disruptive meditative tasks like crocheting or coloring during meetings? Or do accommodations have to be in some kind of resource to be accepted?
