    You don't need to feel isolated!

    For thirty years we have been connecting youth and young adults online for friendship and support, especially at times when the curve balls life throws at us leave us feeling isolated and unsure. Ability Online continues to be a safe and supportive place for young people of all abilities and their families to connect. If you are staying at home to look after your health and well-being, we have people you can chat with, fun recipes and craft ideas, and a library of books and videos for the preschooler right through to beyond high school level readers.
