Disclosure of Disability
Peggy Anderson, Alabama Dept. of Rehabilitative Services
As rehabilitation professionals approach business on behalf of consumer "would-be" hires, or as consumers self advocate for employment opportunities, the issue of disability must be addressed. This webcast approaches the topic of Disclosure of Disability from 2 different perspectives. The first will be more of a legalistic focus, i.e. what can and cannot be disclosed or discussed, in light of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The second will address the disclosure issue from a "best technique" perspective, i.e. once the decision to disclose has been made, what's the best way to do so.
