As a person with a disability, you will have the important decision of whether to disclose your disability or not to disclose. What is important to understand is that in order to receive many of the supports and services that might benefit your success in higher learning, disclosure might be necessary.
For this reason you will want to pay close attention to the supports and services a postsecondary institution offers to all students. Think in terms of:
- Will I be successful with the supports the school offers to all students?
- What will I need in a college classroom setting?
- Do I require accommodations that exceed what are given to all students?
Asking questions, acquiring information on all the supports and services offered while visiting your potential postsecondary institution will help guide the decision making process.
