What Happens If Others Find out?
Henning, Gavin
About Campus, v12 n3 p26-29 Jul-Aug 2007
This author relates how, as a college student with an invisible disability, his experience affected his awareness of students with similar challenges and how educators can serve these students better. Henning shares his story in hopes that it will affect others' awareness of these students' challenges. To help students with hidden disabilities, he encourages educators to lay the foundation for relationships, be observant about students' behavior, and be willing to be active members of their students' lives. This will ensure that students with disabilities--visible and invisible--are treated as full members of their campus communities, that their unique needs are met, and that their academic and personal goals are achieved.
