Resources for Youth with Disabilities

  1. The 411 on Disability Disclosure: A Workbook for Youth with Disabilities

    This workbook helps young people make informed decisions about whether or not to disclose their disability and understand how that decision may impact their education, employment, and social lives. Based on the premise that disclosure is a very personal decision, the Workbook helps young people think about and practice disclosing their disability. 

    The workbook does not tell a young person what to do. Rather, it helps them make informed decisions about disclosing their disability, decisions that will affect their educational, employment, and social lives.
  2. Cyber Disclosure for Youth with Disabilities. This document is a supplement to The 411 on Disability Disclosure: A Workbook for Youth with Disabilities which helps youth learn about disability disclosure and what it means for them. Since the toolkit was written in 2005, there have been many advances in technology that have changed what youth need to know about disability disclosure. The goal of this document is to provide you with suggestions about how to make an informed decision about your own disability disclosure and to manage your disclosure online.
  3. College Planning for Student with Disabilities – a supplement to the College Prep Handbook. By Education Quest Foundation. 
  4. Entering the World of Work: What Youth with Mental Health Needs Should Know about Accommodations An ODEP fact sheet for youth with mental health needs entering the workforce which addresses important concerns they may have regarding disclosure and accommodations.
