One in five Australians has a disability and 80 – 90 percent of these disabilities are ‘invisible’, meaning that people can’t tell someone has a disability by looking at them.
Thanks to the work of Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect), Hidden Disability Sunflower Lanyards are recognised at all major Australian airports as well as an ever-growing list of organisations across the country including Transport NSW, Yarra Trams, Melbourne Cricket Ground and Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. The Sydney Royal Easter Show has them available in its Quiet Room, while Transport NSW and Yarra Trams will have them at key stations and locations.
Contact Aspect or your local airport for more information on how to get one. hiddendisabilitiesshop.com.au or autismspectrum.org.au
