South Dakota DEI Video on Disclosing a Disability

Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On July 03, 2014 (EST)

The goal of the South Dakota Disability Employment Initiative (DEI) grant program, funded by the U.S. Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration and Office of Disability Employment Policy, I is to improve the education, training, and employment opportunities and outcomes of young adults, ages 18-24, with disabilities who are unemployed, underemployed, and/or receiving Social Security disability benefits. Through the DEI grant, SD created this informative video profiling individuals speaking about their decisions regarding disclosing their disability.

SD describes the purpose of the video: Every job seeker with a disability is faced with the same decision: “Should I or shouldn’t I disclose my disability?” This decision may be framed differently depending upon whether you have a visible disability or a non-visible disability. Ultimately, the decision of whether to disclose is entirely up to you. Below is a video developed by South Dakota Disability Employment Initiative with personal testimonies by South Dakotans on their choice to disclose or not disclose their disability in the education and workplace setting.
