People with Disabilities

Many face futures of boredom, isolation, and dependency because public places and services are not designed to support their unique needs.

CIBC MagnusCards – Making Banking and Money Easier

"We normally sit down and do them together, but my son can also use the app independently. If he struggles with reading the words, the app will read the content to him. Once he has gone through the card deck a few times, we practice the skills at home with pretend play. Once he is confident, it is time to take his skills out into the real world!"

Shelley, a mother of a nine-year-old with cognitive disabilities and learning delays

Making Airports Accessible

"As a parent to a child with special needs, it's great knowing that I can feel comfortable about taking her to the airport and letting her be independent."

Cheryl Kocvara, mother of 23-year-old daughter with autism

The Town of Oakville

"This is the tool that is there for them. It also provides learning tools for those parents and guardians to assist their child or friend on how to use transit. Once they are more comfortable and confident using public transit, they can use it to expand their opportunities in the community."

Joanne Phoenix, Manager of Planning and Accessible Services with Oakville Transit
