Abstract

The Equality Act provides a relatively clear definition of disability, yet conceptualisations in the literature provide a more dynamic perspective. This presentation will present qualitative data from a recent expert consultation on the term hidden or nonvisible impairments. A content analysis identified four themes; impairment type, impairment effects, attitudes and perceptions, and disclosure, as being key to understanding impairment visibility. Findings suggest that the ambiguity surrounding a lack of visual cues presents unique challenges, which have received little attention in the literature. Student presentation. Duration: 20 minutes
