OUR MISSION

Enabling a better experience for customers and visitors with mobility challenges

WHO WE ARE

We are a new start-up based mainly in Central & Northern Virginia working on listing and certifying businesses everyday, as well as constantly improving our accessibility tests and disability etiquette training to strengthen our resource.

 

VisitAble was started by Joe Jamison in August 2019 during his time as an undergraduate student at UVA. Having a father who lives with paraplegia, naturally he was motivated to help those with mobility issues. He noticed the lack of available accessibility information and disability etiquette while visiting different locations. Using his experiences with his father and feedback from many others with mobility issues, he developed an accessibility test and a disability etiquette training. At its core, VisitAble was created to make going out in public fun, easy, and possible for those with disabilities.

Right now we are testing our idea to help those with mobility issues. We are geographically constraining our services to Central and Northern Virginia to make sure we can provide the value we hope to.

IMPROVE

Next, we are planning to improve our certification process to be more inclusive to all disabilities and chronic illnesses. We will expand our pool of mystery guests, our accessibility test, our feedback and suggestions, and our database

EXPAND

After we feel comfortable with our certification process, we plan on moving to different American cities and eventually aim to cover the entire United States!

After

At Three Notch'd, there was a temporary ramp that wasn't very sturdy, on top of being steep and narrow. For a long term solution, a permanent ramp was installed so that all individuals can enter the establishment more smoothly.
