Looking back on my own experience. Everything that I went through that was supposed to help me with my Invisible Disabilities. Was either about short term gratification or making life for those around me easier. When it should have been about my long term development so I could best navigate a world I’m not built for.

Making A Case For Sports Therapy For Invisible Disabilities! In my life dealing with my own invisible disabilities.

What kind of sports do I think are best for someone like myself? I really like team sports like football, basketball, soccer, water polo, baseball or volleyball for example. When it comes to individual sports. I think combat sports like boxing or MMA. Since when you train you to work with a partner.

3 Stages Of Understanding One’s Own Invisible Disability It is not always easy for someone with an invisible disability (ADHD, Autistic Spectrum, Learning Disabilities, & so forth) to understand that we have an Invisible Disability. If you are a parent it is tempting to force movement from one stage to The stages are 1. Not being able to understand that we have a disability. This not mean we don’t have a diagnosis. It means that despite having struggles we can’t conceive the idea that we have a disability. 2. Denail/Defense. This is the stage where we understand we have a disability, but remember a very hurtful past, or in some cases might be going through a very low. 3. Is acceptance of the fact that we have a disability and the help and support being offered. There is also the disappointment that that help and support would have never been useful.
