First off, you are not required to mention your disability. Suggest checking out https://www.eeoc.gov//facts/jobapplicant.html
, for more information on the rights of job applicants with disabilities. Secondly, I would suggest you only mention your disability if you feel you will need some kind of accommodation in order to perform the responsibilities of the job. If you don't need an accommodation, it is not relevant. If you do need an accommodation, it is generally (admittedly, this is from an employer's point of view) better to let the potential employer know earlier in the process, so the employer can begin considering possible accommodations sooner vs. later, accommodations that may not only be relevant for the job, but during the interviewing process as well. Of course, this depends on the disability. Hope this helps!
