Access The World

Ability App will help people with any type of disability (cognitive, hearing, vision and mobility) and caregivers navigate public spaces and search for specific disability friendly features. 

Our users will be able to research the level of accessibility at any public space like a retail store, restaurant, hotel, park, theater, etc. prior to leaving the safety, functionality, and security of their own home.  

Mission Statement

To serve people with disabilities, their families, and caregivers by providing a road-map of accessible public spaces and business locations around the world while raising awareness as to the importance of accessibility and inclusion.

We’re always happy to talk about how we can best serve you. Please reach out to us at info@AbilityApp.org

About Ability App

Ability App will help people with any type of disability (cognitive, hearing, vision and mobility) and caregivers navigate public spaces and search for specific disability friendly features. 

Our users will be able to research the level of accessibility at any public space like a retail store, restaurant, hotel, park, theater, etc. prior to leaving the safety, functionality, and security of their own home.

THE PROBLEM

According to the World Health Organization, over a billion people, about 15% of the world’s population, have some form of disability.  Between 110 million and 190 million adults have significant difficulties in functioning. Rates of disability are increasing due to population aging and increases in chronic health conditions, among other causes.

People with disabilities do not have a resource readily available, in one easy to access location, to inform them about the disability friendly features they may or may not find at the places they visit throughout our country or the world, until now.

THE SOLUTION

The goal of Ability App  is to improve the lives of all people with disabilities by giving them the resources to make informed decisions.  Ability App will help people with disabilities and caregivers search for specific disability friendly features, services and employment. Disability friendly features at specific locations will be listed like wheelchair ramps, Braille signs and menus, service animal relief locations, assistive technology for people with hearing impairments, wheelchair friendly restaurant seating and more.
