Why, When and How to Disclose A Visual Disability

Many people with visual impairments have difficulty talking about it, especially when dealing with a potential employer, but also in everyday conversation and with family, when vision loss occurs later in life or is degenerative in nature. Let's explore together why a person would need to disclose, when it might be best and how to make it a positive interaction. Although whether to disclose or not is a personal choice, a discussion with a vision rehabilitation professional about the pros and cons will help inform that decision.

Participants will be able to:
1. Name the single factor that must be considered when deciding to disclose.
2. Name two pros and two cons that help to determine when to disclose.
3. Use the provided tool to guide future discussions about disclosing.
