The UCD Centre for Disability Studies is delighted to support the “I See Beyond” campaign

Thu, 18 February 16 10:51

The campaign aims to raise awareness of hidden disabilities and the challenges these conditions can present in day to day life.  Despite the prevalence of hidden disabilities such as epilepsy and acquired brain injury, a recent survey by Amarach Research revealed that 7 out of 10 people did not understand the term ‘hidden disability’, with a similar number saying they would not feel comfortable telling their employer they had a hidden disability.
 
Launched by Epilepsy Ireland and Headway, the “I See Beyond” campaign has produced six short videos which reflect real life stories and illustrate how all might not be how it seems in the day to day life of the person living with a hidden disability.  The videos aims to challenge those watching to think twice about individuals with hidden disabilities.
