    Don't DIS my ABILITY

    We believe everyone has the potential to be great at something, but sometimes a person needs a little help discovering what that "something" is! That's where we come in. Ability Online takes the "dis" out of disability, encouraging our members to focus on their abilities - what they can do, not what they can't do. 

    On December 3rd, 2017 we launched our "Don't dis My Ability" inspiration story campaign. Read our members' stories in the Ability Online blog or follow us on social media.
