Course for Disclosure Examples

Read the following examples and determine each person’s course for disclosure. First, determine whether or not it is necessary for the person to disclose his or her disability. Then think about the “why,” “when,” “what,” “to whom,” and “how” questions. Write your answers on the lines provided. If possible, share your answers with a group of your peers or classmates. Remember that there are no “right” or “wrong” answers, because choosing to disclose is a personal, individual decision!
