About the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower
The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower is a discreet tool to signal to others that the wearer has a hidden disability and may need some help, extra time, patience and understanding.
It helps those with disabilities that are not immediately obvious, such as:
- chronic pain
- visual impairments
- hearing impairments
You can support someone with a hidden disability by:
- asking if you can help
- having patience
- being kind
- not judging
- listening closely
- showing respect
