What do I do if my professor wants to know what my disability is?

You are under no obligation to share your diagnosis with faculty, you need only give your professor or Teaching Fellow your Faculty Letter from DAO stating what you will need for accommodations for the course. If a professor continues to question you about your diagnosis, please refer them to our office and we will remind them of our privacy policy.

Disclosure is always a personal decision. However, you may want to consider practicing a response to inquiries from others that not only conforms to your individual desire for privacy but also provides clarity surrounding your accommodation needs.
