Inclusion Confusion: What Is the SELF-ID Form and Why Is It Important (5-21-20)

Presented by TransCen, Inc. and the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center

Access this webinar free of charge.

An estimated 34.2 million US citizens have a disability, yet only 26% of people with a disability are known to be in the workforce. These statistics could change due to movements for inclusion and technology advancements. However, stigma persists regarding asking and answering the question – do you have a disability?  This webinar looks at differences between self-identification and self-disclosure and sheds new light on how this sensitive question makes people act and feel.

Learning Objectives

  1. The difference between self-identification and self disclosure – how to avoid the inclusion confusion
  2. Why the self-identification question is asked, how that information is tracked, stored and utilized
  3. How do people with disabilities and their service providers FEEL about the request to self-identify
  4. What can be done to make everyone more knowledgeable and more comfortable about this topic
