Disclosure and Confidentiality

Disclosure

Disclosure

It is a personal choice.

ADCET (Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training) has developed some useful information about disclosure which may help you to understand when and why you may choose to disclose your medical condition or disability, and how this may assist you with negotiating Reasonable Adjustments to your studies at University.

Confidentiality

Information about the nature of your disability or medical condition (i.e. your diagnosis) is not disclosed without your permission.

Information obtained from you about the functional impact of your disability or medical condition is used to identify Reasonable Adjustments to assist you with your studies.

The word 'disability' is used in a generic way to protect your privacy. It is used in your Access Plan and in correspondence with Course Coordinators.

Your choice to work with Disability Support is not reflected on your transcript.
