Spotlight on Invisible Disabilities: Youth consultation on changing attitudes

On November 16, 2017, a live webcast was held exploring youth and changing attitudes towards people with non-visible disabilities. The webcast featured four youth panelists representing a broad spectrum of youth with non-visible disabilities. Among the 150 registrants across the country and the United States, many engaging with the panelists and putting forward ideas on how to change attitudes and shift Canadian culture towards a culture of acceptance and understanding.

The complexity of disabilities, as well as the need to both recognize individual needs and ensure broad accessibility, was a central part of the conversation. Much of the dialogue returned to the need for individuals to self-advocate while also promoting a culture of understanding within educational institutions and the workplace. What follows are recommendations that emerged from the discussion.

The three topics discussed were education, awareness and accessibility.  The complete report is here.
