Visions—Workplace: Disclosure and Accommodations

PDF | EPUB | Vol. 13, No. 4 (2018)

Disclosing an invisible disability is still, sadly, a somewhat risky act and it takes courage for an employee to raise their hand and say what they need and why. They can feel self-conscious, different, vulnerable. By the same measure, disclosure is usually accompanied by a request for accommodation—small changes or simple tools that can make success at work easier. Accommodations done well provide protection and support .
