Non-Visible Disabilities (NVD), also known as hidden disabilities, vary across a range of categories, both physical and mental. Lack of awareness and understanding for individuals with NVD, especially from college peers, can have a major effect on students with NVD’s sense of identity and belonging, participation in class and social activities, and ultimately, can influence their decision to limit or stop accessing disability services and accommodations. To increase their awareness and encourage empathy and allyship, I intend to provide a two-hour workshop for college students affiliated with TRIO at CSUMB to engage with and learn from their colleagues with Non-Visible Disabilities.
