Parents and interest groups have to work together for children with hidden disabilities. That was the position held by speakers at the Catholic Religious Education Development Institute’s (CREDI) ‘What you cannot see’ hidden disabilities conference May 17 at the Government Campus Centre.
In his presentation on ‘Hidden Medical Disabilities’ pediatrician Dr David Bratt said as a medical doctor there was only so much he could do. He “fell into” responding to hidden disabilities because of cases seen at his clinic. Although he is “semi-retired” he still runs a small clinic and every week there is one child with a developmental problem requiring special education.
