The perpetual and on-going nature of all types of disabilities on the human condition can have multiple effects and long- lasting consequences on a person’s life and their perception of personal and professional successes. This is especially true of adult students with hidden disabilities pursuing a higher education enrolled in colleges and universities around the world.

Living with a disability or disabilities can present additional challenges and adds limitations to a person’s life. The complication of issues and realities of discrimination that continue to exist today create the belief that disabled people need to learn to adapt to society, instead of society adapting to the disabled.
