"70% of families impacted by autism say they feel socially isolated"1

Most disability accommodations such as ramps, automatic doors, and elevators support those with physical challenges. Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, anxiety disorders, and others, receive little support.

These individuals tend to struggle with away-from-home experiences - it's usually just easier to stay home. For example, 70% of families impacted by autism say they feel socially isolated.1 This negatively affects their lives, our communities, our businesses, and us.

We help this population become less isolated by inviting them out into our communities using videos showing what to expect, user-friendly accessibility information, and a mobile-friendly, interactive digital guide that can be customized for each type of customer experience.
