Hidden Disabilities

For many of us “seeing is believing,” but what about the things we cannot see?  Millions of people across the world suffer from “hidden disabilities” such as brain injuries, autism spectrum disorders, mental illness and more.  Though these disabilities may not be visible on the outside, they are serious and life altering. Laura Brydges, a Canadian living with the effects of brain injury, has started a campaign to create a hidden disability symbol to bring awareness to those who live with these disabilities.  Check out this article from Brain Injury Society of Toronto’s blog (BIST) and help Laura in her quest to make this symbol recognized around the world.
