Have you heard of an invisible disability? Often after a stroke or brain injury people have symptoms that others can not see and have difficulty understanding. Some of these symptoms may include fatigue, dizziness, pain, emotional impairments, and cognitive impairments. Sometimes when others don’t understand your impairments it can be frustrating and even further disabling.

If you have an invisible disability after a stroke or brain injury occupational therapy (OT) can help in a number of ways.
