The Elephant in the Room: A Discussion about Employees with Psychiatric Disabilities in the Workplace

Presenter: Pam Williamson, Southeast ADA Center, Burton Blatt Institute

Supported employment professionals have an important role to play in educating employees with psychiatric disabilities about the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), talking to employers, and bridging the gap between the employee and employer.

We must prepare and learn how and when to disclose a disability, the pros and cons to disclosing, how to request reasonable accommodations on the job, the role of the supported employment professional in disclosure, and the responsibilities of the employee and employer under the ADA. Ms. Williamson will also share her own story as a person who has a psychiatric disability and discuss how she learned to deal with the "elephant in the room."

$15 for APSE Members | $30 for Non-Members

You will be registered once your payment has been submitted.
