    IS IT WORTH IT TO TELL YOUR BOSS THAT YOU HAVE A DISABILITY

    Key Takeaways

    Your child may be able to find ways to adapt and create informal accommodations without telling her employer about her disability.

    If your child decides to disclose her disability, the goal is for her to be brief, clear and positive.

    Because of privacy rules, your child’s co-workers most likely will only hear about her disability if she tells them herself.
