“We make it easy for the disability field to find tech solutions
…and try to make it fun along the way.”
Why was Disability Cocoon created?
I was sitting at my desk on a day like any other ( I was the Executive Director of an I/DD remote support company) and realized that there wasn't any one national entity totally focused on I/DD technology.
I realized the work I had done for the last 15 years in developing Waiver funding and regulatory environments for tech in multiple states (with the help of many other people) wasn't enough to bring technology “mainstream” in I/DD services.
I knew 1) tech will play a key role in solving many of our industry's biggest challenges, 2) tech will enable amazing possibilities for the people we support, 3) new tech companies were going to struggle navigating our complex disability system, and 4) the field didn't have any one place to turn to for all things tech.
I saw a need, and thought I would try to leverage my experience to help push the industry towards a tech first mindset. Out of this, Disability Cocoon was born in July 2018.
how can we help?
