Ours will truly be your tribe

AbleFinder is an online tool built to connect parents and primary carers of children with disability with others on similar journeys.

“When I was 15, I developed a life-limiting condition. It was unexpected, and my mum struggled to cope. Not having anyone in her support network who she felt could relate to our situation, she tried to manage on her own. Our world became very small very quickly, and both our health and relationship suffered for it

Fortunately, my condition and our circumstances eventually improved, and I went on to become a Speech Pathologist, in the hope of helping other families living with disability have a voice.

Oddly enough, it was only when I started working that I realised even the most compassionate clinical care doesn’t come close to providing the sense of comfort and confidence that comes from having a trusted support network of peers, people who are just like you.”

Our mission

There are more than 60 million parents around the world caring for a child with a disability who feel alone, misunderstood, and unable to cope.

Our mission is to work with the global disability community to ensure that: no family feels left alone, information is easily shared, and newly diagnosed families have access to the insight of those who have been there before.
