Resources for Social Disclosure
To tell or not to tell — that is the question. One helpful resource is a workbook published by www.disability.gov called, The 411 on Disability Disclosure: A Workbook for Youth with Disabilities. The workbook is designed to help people make informed decisions about whether or not to disclose their disability and understand how the decision may impact their education, employment, and social lives. The workbook treats disclosure as a very personal decision, and helps people think about and practice disclosing their disability.
