Deaf, autism, dyslexia, hard of hearing, neurological issues, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, psychiatric disability, intellectual disabilities, multiple sclerosis. This is a short list of specific disabilities people live with that can be invisible to others. 

Disabilities that aren’t readily apparent are important to understand. No matter your field—from human resources, social services and education, to customer service or even website development—understanding hidden disabilities will help you navigate the world better.

Panelists Valerie DeBrita, Sarah Launderville, and Angela Gowans share personal experiences, important facts, and recommend helpful resources.
