Is there a way to control a differential drive robot through manipulating its acceleration rather than through cmd_vel?

I'm trying to build a differential drive robot, and I've been using this tutorial:

However, I'm now required to find a way to control this robot's acceleration, not its velocity. Is there a different plugin out there that allows the user to control the acceleration? Is there a way to access the acceleration controls that lie under the surface in the standard differential_drive_controller (

Any guidance would be very much appreciated.
