    Social Model of Disability - Not just for Disabled Academics

    University student perspectives on institutional non-disclosure of disability and learning challenges: reasons for staying invisible

    It is suspected that there is a much larger population of students who choose non-disclosure, and therefore decide not to access support. Very little is known about the reasons for non-disclosure as this group represents a hidden population in higher education. This research identified that there were sound reasons for non-disclosure, students continually weigh up potential disclosure during their study, and students have difficulty with the disclosure process. We conclude that institutions need to understand that they have an invisible group of non-disclosing SWD in their student populations and that, to meet their learning challenges, universities need to support changes to policies, procedures and curriculum design.  (International Journal of Inclusive Education. Volume 23, 2019. Susan Grimes, Erica Southgate, Jill Scevak and Rachel Buchanan.  )
