The Big Picture
Mandates like the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Accessible Canada Act (ACA) guarantee equal opportunity in public accommodations, such as restaurants, hotels, theaters, doctors’ offices, retail stores, museums, libraries, parks, government services, and more.

— Case Studies
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!"
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."
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."
