Why We Do What We Do
"Disability only becomes a tragedy when society fails to provide the things needed to lead one’s daily life"
VisitAble seeks to create and proliferate the tools that make disability inclusion a reality for all.
VisitAble helps educate potential employers, institutions, and organizations on how to interact with and treat people with disabilities as valued equals, so everyone can live, work, play, and thrive in the same world, together.
Every person, disabled or not, has a basic right to be treated with dignity and respect. VisitAble has the tools to make this a reality.
Where the ADA is
reactive and punitive,
we seek to be
proactive and positive.
Our robust and persistent research make us the experts when it comes to how people with disabilities prefer to be treated. Our vision is to maintain this expert-level insight while continuing to aggregate and refine this knowledge into training that creates real-world benefit for years to come.
Over time, our goal is to change the way the world views disability inclusion by championing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives that focus on disability awareness and incentivizing companies to emphasize accessibility in their DEI plans. Our vision for the future is a world where VisitAble is no longer necessary, and everyone knows how to treat people with disabilities respectfully.

"But wouldn't it be nice if things were a little easier?"
The work we do at VisitAble comes from a place of passion, first and foremost. We work with people who are honest and up-front about their wants and needs, and who will put genuine effort towards including everyone.
This is the cornerstone of VisitAble's approach, both within our training and in the way we treat the world. Without respect, there can be no trust. We work to show up on time, practice integrity in what we say, and always be willing to listen before speaking.
Over time, we have found that treating people like we are establishing a long-term relationship together drives us to practice openness, sharing, and a win-win mindset towards everyone we engage with. Working together to benefit mutually is the only way to create a world that works for everybody.
