On December 3 this year, during the annual celebration of people with disabilities, the 2020 theme ‘Not all Disabilities are Visible’ also focuses on spreading awareness and understanding of disabilities that are not immediately apparent, such as mental illness, chronic pain or fatigue, sight or hearing impairments, diabetes, brain injuries, neurological disorders, learning differences and cognitive dysfunctions, among others.
GO Wales at USW is supporting this annual celebration. We have success at supporting disabled students to find work experience opportunities, including discussing reasonable adjustments with employers and disability disclosure. GOWales students at USW have, expressed, how they no longer see their disability as a barrier.
