Comhairle na nÓg Hidden disabilities hand book!
Monaghan Comhairle na nÓg is a youth council which gives young people the opportunity to be involved in the development of local service and policies. The comhairle na nÓg gets young people’s voices heard by working on youth issues/topics and acting as a consultative form.
Each yeah the Comhairle works on a key topic, this year the topic was Inclusion – raising awareness of disabilities. As part of the project, the group decided to focus their attention on Hidden Disabilities. The following booklet will explain what a hidden disability is and identify some of the more common hidden disabilities. Myths and stereotypes will be debunked and famous people who have lived with and excelled in life with a hidden disability will be highlighted.
A huge congratulations to the Comhairle from all of us here at YWICM for this fantastic hand book.
