Is it legal for a job to ask you what your disability is if they saw you went to a special education high school on your application?

    if it could impact your work placement, yes.  Many job apps have things like: back injuries, standing issues etc. You could refuse to answer, and see what happens.

    It's my understanding that an employer is *not* supposed to ask a prospective employee or employee to name his or her disability.  They can apparently inquire the types of job accommodations that one may possibly require though.

    No, it's not. It is up to you to bring it up though, if you need special accommodations of any sort in order to perform the job.

    It's certainly fine in the UK , they need to know you are fit to do the job.

    If you lack the tools needed to do the job, its not discriminatory.

    Employers are allowed to ask questions to determine if you're capable of performing the duties of the job, but coming straight out and asking "what's your disability" certainly isn't the best way to go about it.

    I am not a lawyer.

    It is probably not legal during an interview to ask this specifically.  But I think it is OK to ask if you have a disability that might prohibit you from performing the job functions.  You should  answer that question truthfully.
