We understand different needs
What is accessibility? It’s ensuring that the things people depend on throughout their daily lives are usable regardless of whether a person has a disability. Statistics show that more than 1 billion people worldwide have a disability or an access need.
Accessibility is about making sure that everyone can partake in what the world has to offer. It's about all of us.
Determination. Innovation. Inspiration.

4 disability clichés, and what you can say instead
