Why should you care about INVISIBLE DISABILITIES?

When you see someone in a wheelchair, with a hearing aid or a white cane it is easy to identify their disability and know what difficulties they may face. However, there is a whole range of invisible disabilities that can influence people’s behaviours, mobility or ability to communicate.

In today’s fast moving world we should be more tolerant, realise that the person irritating you by walking too slow or child throwing a tantrum may have an invisible disability. We should all #stopstaringstartcaring.
