I work in a team that does have a workflow management system for submitting work orders within the organization but it is used mostly for requests going from one team to another. While proper specification artefacts are used for larger projects, most small work requests within my team are communicated in an unstructured manner, if you are lucky in an email but most team members just prefer to communicate them verbally.
Personally, I have a certain cognitive condition which limits my abilites to process auditory stimuli (it is not a hearing problem) and it has always been next to impossible for me to take notes as I am unable to listen and write simultaneously. E.g. I did very well in school but I always had to borrow and copy someone else's notes. So I work much better if all work orders are communicated to me in writing, even the smallest ones.
My question is: Is it OK for me to request such accommodation from my team members given that it is different from their habituated M.O. and should I list my cognitive condition as the reason why?
