It is important to be strategic and intentional about these conversations, customizing your approach based on your personal preferences and changing your 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.
