Seeing the unseen: How to spot and support students with non-visible disabilities, London

  1. Thu 01 Jun

    Now open to all members

    This is an Eastern, London and Southern Regional Training event.

    The aim of this event is to increase participants’ confidence and knowledge when working with students with non-visible disabilities, and will cover the following –

        •    What is a “non-visible” disability?

        •    Positive self-marketing for students: Role models, and examples of strengths and
             attributes of those with a non-visible disability.

        •    Signs and symptoms of some of the more common non-visible disabilities.

        •    Hints and tips for supporting students with a non-visible disability, including
             information resources.

    There will be contributions from two university careers services (De Montfort University, Leicester and the London School of Economics) and a speaker with experience of overcoming a non-visible disability to succeed in the workplace: Our speaker is Edward Howlin, IT Delivery Manager at the Food Standards Agency. Edward is an alumnus of the London School of Economics and will be talking about his own experiences as a student, an employee, and an employer with a non-visible disability.

    Some interactive group work will be included as well as the opportunity to share good practice and useful resources.

    Here are some quotes from participants in last year’s event, taken from completed evaluation questionnaires:

    “As someone with limited knowledge of non-visible disabilities I have learnt so much.”

    “Such a fantastic programme. Thank you!”

     “The interactive aspects worked really well because the activities engaged everybody and prompted discussion of the issues and the sharing of experiences.”
