    As many forum members here know that I am about to start a master’s course this September in management. But I already have the unpleasant omen that my Aspergers/ADHD will fatally mar this opportunity.
    On my undergraduate degree I was belatedly diagnosed and they did everything to support me , but for some reason it just made it worse.
    I have no idea what to say to him. Would it be ok to ask him to send over lecture slides beforehand?

    You will need to approach your uni's Student Support office and make arrangements via them. Programme Leaders aren't responsible for sorting this type of issue out.

    It helps to go via Student Support, as this lends more weight to your specific needs and they can 'encourage' staff to cooperate. Unsupported requests from individual students can sometimes not be treated seriously.

    Plus you don't want to get yourself a reputation as a problem student before you even get there.

    If it helps, I found that Masters study was far less lecture-based than undergrad, so you may not have a problem in that direction. Masters study for me was more about guided/targeted independent study.
