ASERT does not offer crisis services through our Resource Center. If you or someone you love is experiencing mental health distress or thoughts of suicide please call or text 988 for support.
This resource provides information for individuals with autism about the pros and cons of disclosing a disability.
Disclosing a disability such as your autism spectrum disorder is a highly personal choice that will vary based on the individual. It really depends on how comfortable you are as a person with the idea of disclosing to your employer. Regardless of which decision you make, there could be consequences whether you choose to disclose or not.
This information was developed by the Autism Services, Education, Resources, and Training Collaborative (ASERT). For more information, please contact ASERT at 877-231-4244 or info@PAautism.org.
