Over 90% of people who relate to having a disability don't have any visible symptoms, which often leads to misunderstanding, judgement and isolation. These could be conditions such as anxiety, autism, OCD and ME.
Root Experience is making a free, illustrative book to shine a light on how people live with the many different conditions that are unseen, to help increase awareness and empathy in our communities.
Reading Central Library is excited to be working with Root Experience to help them develop the first draft of this exciting new book and you are invited to be part of it too.
If you know someone living with an invisible disability (a friend, family member or colleague) you are invited to give your feedback to the first draft and give contributions at a workshop in the Central Library on Tuesday 5 February 2019, 5pm – 7pm.
