“To guide individuals with Invisible Challenges™ to become self-directed, self-maintaining, self-sustaining, free-thinking and creative.”
What are Invisible Challenges™?
Invisible Challenges™ are the inability to connect with oneself and others. It is anything that hinders a person from a full and rich life other than a physical disability. It includes anything that limits one’s human experience socially, professionally, personally and intimate relationships.
These challenges may take the form of anything such as:
- Relationship difficulties
- Being sensitive to environments and people
- Feeling as if they do not belong
- Insensitivities to others and/or their feelings
- Personal and/or Professional Social difficulties
- Internal and/or External Communication Issues
Invisible Challenges™ can be pervasive and subtle in the human experience but may manifest themselves in but not limited to medical diagnoses such as addiction, Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, behavioral difficulties, depression and other mental health disorders or display themselves through but not limited to personal relationships, incarceration, employment difficulties, or business and community relations.

Adele Saccarelli Cavallaro, Founder and Executive Director of TWW, struggled at a young age with several Invisible Challenges™, i.e. hyperactivity, Dyslexia and auditory processing. Because she could not focus like the average child, she fell behind in her academic studies. The traditional school system was not working for her which drove her to find solutions. In 1989, Adele began working as a teacher in the public schools and in the prison system. She developed a love for teaching, but saw the limitations of traditional learning environments. So she created her own teaching style by combining traditional ideas and philosophies from various methods with outside the box methods and self created methods. In doing so she found a very successful teaching method that empowered people rather than forcing them to conform. In November 2000, in her quest for answers, Adele founded Teamwork Wins a foundation for awareness and change in assisting individuals with Invisible Challenges(TM)in thriving instead of merely surviving with these challenges. TWW assist individuals in blending with the world without changing who they are. Adele with the help of many other individuals on the team direct a cutting-edge non-profit organization that serves individuals with Invisible Challenges ™.
