A NEW PERSPECTIVE

New perspectives are emerging when it comes to neurological differences in those living with intellectual or developmental disabilities, that those neurological differences are just that: differences. Having a brain that functions and thinks differently is a normal and natural variation of the human genome. So what does that mean exactly?

WHAT IS NEURODIVERSITY?
"I am excited to work at the tulip farm because I love to work and I love to help people. I also really like to learn. I am happy that PerspectAbility will help me do all of that." - Cody Jensen

OUR STORY

PerspectAbility Inc. is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization formed by a group of parents of children with neurodiversities. After researching local resources for adults with neurodiversities, we determined the options available don’t fit our children’s needs or offer the quality of life we desire for our children. We are advocates for our children and firm believers in research-based strategies, data collection, communication, and accountability to ensure programming is effective and appropriate for the individual receiving it.
