    16. Some Considerations for Students with Disabilities • Can you articulate in 3-4 sentences your disability? • Do you understand the assessment of your disability? • Learning style: Hands on? Visual? Auditory? • Accommodations: What are they now? What will transfer to post secondary? To the workplace? • Disclosure beyond school: When to disclose? To whom? J.Ouellette

    17. Challenges • Being motivated, seeing the connection and understanding the importance of the links in their process. • See career decisions as events that occur at particular points in one’s life rather than an ongoing process • Connection between academic subjects and career goals may not be clear • Changes in labour market: having the information or knowing where to find it. • Indifference which may be linked to lack of preparation OR feeling overwhelmed J.Ouellette
