OUR MISSION

Enabling a better experience for customers and visitors of all abilities

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 disabilities. He noticed the lack of available accessibility information and disability etiquette while visiting different locations. Using his experiences with his father, the knowledge gained from earning the Certified Professional in Accessibility Core Competencies certificate, and feedback from many others with varying types of disabilities, he developed comprehensive certification programs centered around disability inclusion and user experience, not only Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance. At its core, VisitAble was created to make going out in public fun, easy, and possible for those with disabilities.

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.
