Who we are

Distinctability was founded by two professionals who want to help others to accelerate change in the levels of opportunities that exist for people with disabilities.  We are doing this through providing information, raising awareness, and introducing services and solutions around Assistive Technologies and communication innovations.

This extends to helping inform & educate employers to become more sustainably & confidently involved themselves.

Very simple really but we have ambitious plans…
