I’ll begin with a reminder that this article is written specifically from the perspective of an individual with an obvious physical disability, who self-identifies by nature and choice as an individual with a disability. Not everyone who has a disability is readily identifiable as a disabled person, for myriad different reasons. For example, their disability may not be physical, visually recognizable, or they may choose to obscure or deny the conditions and precepts of their disability. This is their choice, and they are free to make it. However, an argument will be made in this writing that it is personally and professionally detrimental to either attempt to or successfully hide a disability from an employer or colleague.
