Children, youth, and “hidden” disability. This issue describes some of the realities of growing up with disabilities that are not visible, such as mental health challenges, learning disabilities, dyslexia, and Asperger syndrome.
Please send us a note for the next issue: Abuse and disability. More people with disabilities experience physical, sexual, and emotional abuse than the general population. Breaking barriers of silence and secrecy can help people understand the experience of abuse and respond appropriately. If you have a disability and have experienced abuse, and are willing to share your story, please send us a note describing your experience by November 30.
