Why Students Choose to Disclose

If a student wishes to disclose their disability, it is essential that they state their purpose in disclosing their disability.

What is most important and helpful is to provide information about how a student’s disability impacts on their capacity to study and what supports are needed to assist in providing the optimum environment for study to occur.

Even if a student believes they don’t need additional support, they may choose to disclose just in case they may need reasonable adjustments or support in the future.
