Non-apparent disabilities are disabilities that are not immediately obvious, such as ADHD, Dyslexia, ASD, PTSD, and chronic pain. While these disabilities are harder to recognize than visible disabilities, they still impair daily life, and often require some form of intervention, medication, or accessibility. In academia an invisible disability can have a heavy impact on success, and this can lead to compounding problems throughout life. Since non-apparent disabilities are harder to recognize, people may go through life unaware that they are struggling because of an undiagnosed disability. Alternatively, they may suspect that they have a non-apparent disability, but they lack the resources to get diagnosed.
