Disability Disclosure in Education and Employment

Thursday, September 19, 2019 — 1:45PM - 2:45PM


Students with disabilities often have questions about if, when, and how they should share information about their disability in the context of education and employment. It is important to be strategic and intentional about these conversations, customizing their approach based on their personal preferences and changing their approach in different settings. Panelists will describe their experiences disclosing disability in both education and employment settings and offer advice to others who are navigating these conversations. Participants can learn about strategies for disability disclosure and ways to best support individuals with disabilities in education and employment.
