Parity for People of All Cognitive Abilities

We help make built environments, products, and services accessible to all.

Inclusive by Design

People think and understand the world around us differently, but products, services and the built environment are designed for those who we perceive as typical. We’re ending this disparity, by making people with a range of cognitive abilities part of the solution.
