ATD-GTC Coaching Community of Practice

Behind the Mask: Understanding and Coaching to Invisible Disabilities

Presenter:  

Cindy Edwards, Owner of Find Your Fit, LLC. and Annie Montemayor, a career counselor at Capella University and a member of the MCDA board. 

Often people think the term disability only refers to people using a wheelchair or walker, but in reality 74% of Americans who live with a severe disability don’t use such devices. Invisible disabilities are not immediately apparent, “masked” to an observer, and can limit daily activities, ranges from mild to severe and varies from person to person.  This provides some unique workplace and career challenges to navigate.

Join us for a discussion on some of the most common invisible disabilities, gain insights on cues associated with invisible disabilities, and learn how you can better serve your clients by asking the right question, learning when to refer, and understanding disclosure rights and options.
