Disclosure of Disability
February 21, 2006

The second will address the disclosure issue from a "best technique" perspective—i.e., once the decision to disclose has been made, what's the best way to do so. Presented by Peggy Anderson, Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services, and sponsored by T-TAP and Worksupport.com. Registration is required and a registration fee does apply.
