AbilityFirst provides lifespan services specifically designed to help children and adults with physical and developmental disabilities realize their full potential. The group has a fascinating history that began in the days when polio stole childhood from so many of America's young. In fact, AbilityFirst (formerly known as the Crippled Children's Society) built the first camp for people with disabilities. Our Visionaries crew hears firsthand from campers past and present, who provide poignant testimony to the evolving perception of America's disabled community. AbilityFirst's vision is of a society that values each individual and provides the opportunity for all people to lead full and productive lives. Looking beyond disabilities, focusing on capabilities, expanding possibilities-we'll show you how they do it.
