At home, school, work, and play
Over a billion people worldwide live with a disability. In the U.S. alone, almost 57 million Americans have a disability impacting daily life, with over 300,000 living in Colorado. The numbers are rapidly increasing, locally and worldwide, due to population aging, decreased infant mortality, improved trauma care, and increases in chronic health conditions. Since 1989, the Center for Inclusive Design and Engineering (formerly Assistive Technology Partners) has worked hand-in-hand with community stakeholders to ensure people with disabilities and seniors thrive at home, school, work, and play.
