OTD Capstone Projects

Abstract

Ability App was invented and founded by Alex Knoll, an incredible teenager with a passion for helping provide resources for individuals with disabilities. The app strives to serve people with disabilities, their families, and caregivers by providing a road-map of accessible public spaces and business locations around the world while raising awareness about the importance of accessibility and inclusion. The project goal was to network the app to different occupational therapy programs in order to help expand the number of locations that are available for Ability App users. Occupational therapists can use Ability App to advocate for individuals with disabilities, promote accessibility and increase awareness of these topics in every community.
