College students with disabilities are often faced with the choice of whether or not to disclose their disability. In many cases, disclosing your disability can provide you with accommodations that could create access for you in order to enhance your success in the college environment. Once you graduate, you will be faced with another choice of whether or not to disclose to an employer. You may wander, “Should I, or shouldn’t I disclose my disability to my employer?” This is a complex question to answer.
Please join us on April 1, from 2pm-3pm in the East Parlor of St. Joseph Hall for resources and advice on disclosing a disability in the workplace.
