Are you from STEM? These fields have extended OPT. You can talk to International office at your school, they might be able to suggest something.

Your school (internation office/grad office) should be able to tell you this.

I don't know whether this is possible. but could you stop the OPT and use CPT (or any other type of training) instead, use can use the remaining time on the OPT after your CPT expires. Again your international office/grad school can help you figure this out whether this is possible.
