In response to the person asking about the different types, both diabetes and seizure dogs function by scenting changes in the person's own personal chemistry, in a chemical environment I am fairly certain both of those types of dogs would be hampered in their duties just due to the environment. Hearing, Mobility and Vision support could be separated for the lab time without serious problems. PTSD dogs it would be harder but if they can be kept in line of sight to the person that should provide enough support.
Also consider the persons disability in picking classes, not all situations are going to be appropriate for all people with all types of disabilities. That needs to be taken under consideration as well.
