Introduction to Assistive Technology

Invisible Disabilities

The first activity in this module had a statement on Autism. How did you identify the Person with Autism?
Most of you might not have been able to identify the person with autism or even what autism is. This brings us to an important perspective on invisible disabilities.

Invisible Disabilities are those which are not apparently noticeable by others. These include challenges in vision, hearing, speech, movement, communication, learning, remembering, thinking, maintaining mental health and social relationships.

There are many resources available to know more about invisible disabilities. Here’s a short video on People with Invisible Disabilities sharing their lived experiences.
