Our world is rapidly advancing and people with disabilities are getting left further behind

There is no barrier we cannot overcome when we choose to make it work

MAKE DISABILITY PERSONAL

Making disability “personal” recognizes that many barriers are better solved by the real people in someone’s life, rather than a bevy of experts. At Make It Work, we support you to brainstorm on-the-ground strategies to override roadblocks.

DISABILITY THINK

Our Disability Think applies a proven framework for innovation to empower companies, family members, government programs, service providers, teachers, and people with disabilities to respond to challenges by changing “we can’t do” into “how might we.”

NOTABLE

We believe (and research confirms) disability inclusion starts with a conversation.  It’s our vision to close the gap for people with disabilities by transforming “not” “able” into notable.  Our game-changing cloud-based platform, Notable, harnesses the power of social accountability and makes disability something worth talking about.

MAKING IT WORK

Barriers big and small prevent people with disabilities from being fully engaged members of our community. By offering a hand-up, not a handout, we work to bridge the gap and do what it takes to make it work in our community and beyond.
