Barriers for Students with Invisible Disabilities: The Impact on Self-Advocacy and Accessing Accommodations (Debra Holzberg, Ph.D., University of North Carolina Greensboro and Latacha Hamilton, Ph.D., St Jude Children's Research Hospital):

Students with invisible disabilities who transition to postsecondary educational settings have the option of disclosing their disability identity to support services; however, often there are barriers which hinder students’ disclosure. This combined session will describe a qualitative study using semi-structured interviews to question students utilizing disability support services at one 4-year, public institution regarding their perceptions of self-identifying as having a disability to obtain accommodations. The second study evaluated the effects of Self-Advocacy and Conflict Resolution (SACR) instruction on the ability of four college students with hidden disabilities to request and negotiate academic accommodations in role-play and in-situ settings. Results of both studies will be presented along with a role-play demonstration. Additionally, implications for practice will be discussed. The session will conclude with time for questions and answers.
