How do we judge if someone is a good person to disclose to, even those in trusted positions. Is it really helpful for either party?
Disclosing neurodivergence in a professional setting may facilitate positive adaptations but also be associated with negative stigma. Neurodivergent people may feel pressured to disclose even when it's against their interests. The discussion will focus on the experiences of those in that situation and considerations around disclosure, including the factors either way which might help someone consider their position.
