How to tell others about a disability

Why tell others about your child's disability or your own disability? Sharing information about a disability and how it affects an individual helps to provide an accurate image and understanding of that person and will help eliminate guesswork and assumptions made by family, friends, community members, or professionals. Disclosure may open doors to better communication and understanding in both personal and professional relationships.

Families will explore why, when, where, and how to tell others about a child's disability. Self-advocates will learn that disclosing to others may help them recognize their strengths and gain skills and support.

Participants will leave with a sampling of tools designed to facilitate disclosure.



Registration is required. This workshop is FREE to family members of children who have disabilities or suspected disabilities.

To register, email jmundy@happinesshouse.org or call 315-789-6828, ext. 7160

Please request special accommodations at least two weeks before the event.

Presented by Starbridge in partnership with Happiness House
