We are taught to think of the disabled as those who use assisted devices like wheelchairs yet people with ‘invisible’ disabilities like sensory loss, chronic pain, anxiety, and other mental health conditions are frequently excluded from being thought of as disabled. Invisible disabilities in the workplace may lead managers and colleagues to view employees as difficult, lazy or not team players. Sadly people judge others by what they see and often conclude a person can or cannot do something simply by the way they look.
“Not all disability is visible but attitudes and lack of awareness are.”
