6.5 MILLION AMERICANS HAVE A DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITY
Individuals with disabilities face many challenges in their daily lives: poor physical access to common spaces, additional difficulty in performing everyday tasks and limitations brought on naturally through their disability. But one challenge comes from society: the language and perceptions that others unfairly impose upon them. The Ability Experience works to promote inclusivity and an understanding of a person’s situation, feelings, and thoughts. We promote empathy over sympathy, and work to open spaces, increase access and promote inclusivity.
