Three words. Adaptive…Climbing…Wall. Oh yes, using the adaptive climbing equipment he developed, Paralympian Mark Wellman—first paraplegic to climb El Capitan in Yosemite—will help you scale the wall and ring the bell regardless of your level of ability!

Have you seen Speechless? If not, DVR immediately. If yes, you know Micah Fowler who plays J.J. DiMeo on the critically acclaimed ABC sitcom. Don’t miss his Q&A at Abilities Expo where Micah will talk about the show as well as his refusal to let cerebral palsy define him.

There will be tons of other new horizons to explore! Martial Arts therapy, for one. And get ready for ride-along racing, quad rugby, hockey, basketball and a daily demo for both dancing and service dogs.

You’ll also meet the director and stars from the film, Take a Look at this Heart, a new documentary that delves into love and relationships among people with disabilities.

There’s also a great session on hyperbaric oxygen therapy which, in addition to helping people with autism, SCI, MS and more, is especially effective for people whose respiratory issues have been affected by the fires. (You get to try this out for yourself, too!)

What would you say to the experts in accessible travel who will help you make your dream vacation a reality? Learn about this and maximizing well-being, how to deal with practical issues stemming from SCI, medical cannabis, accessible home design, pediatric therapies and choosing the right accessible vehicle at our informative workshops.

The products, services and technologies are drawing attendees from all over the area—everything from hi-tech power chairs and accessible vehicles to self-feeding robots and info how how to make your disability expenses tax-free. And swing by the Assistive Technology Showcase to experience more cutting-edge AT hands-on.
