Dreamscape Foundation believes in order for the disabled to be successful, they must be empowered to meet their educational and employment goals. However, in order to do that, there are certain disability needs that we, as a community, must provide. Despite the existence of the American with Disabilities Act in the United States, the disabled community is still experiencing a wide accessibility gap. We see it in the large numbers of students having unmet needs that impact their education. It shows in the low employment percentage for those who fall within this group.
We need more than just laws and regulations to meet the disability needs of our communities. Dreamscape Foundation realizes it takes a united effort to bridge the large gap in our world’s accessibility. That’s why we focus our work on meeting these needs as effectively as possible. Our nonprofit focuses on three goals: build awareness of the accessibility gap, provide resources to disabled individuals in need, and provide funding for new technology as well as research toward finding cures for rare diseases.
The talent to create technological solutions is abundant, but to inspire the capable, they must first become aware of the needs all around them. They need insight as well as inspiration, and guidance to help them better understand the disability needs present in today’s society. Our nonprofit places a keen focus on building accessibility through technology. We do this by working with assistive technology developers as partners, providing them the support and guidance they need to build products that effectively help their target users.
Dreamscape Foundation provides a special focus on meeting the needs of students and those seeking employment by providing support and tools needed for them to achieve independence and improve their accessible access through technology. From grants and funding to helpful resources necessary to overcome unique challenges, our team steps up to the plate. We make it our job to change lives for the better by opening doors that were once closed due to specific impairments.
Making the Internet More Accessible
It’s hard to imagine navigating the modern world without unfettered access to the Internet. From online shopping and managing our finances to conducting research and connecting with friends, we depend heavily upon the digital world. Our hands are constantly reaching for technology: cell phones, laptops, desktops, tablets, and more. But what about those who cannot see, hear, or utilize these everyday devices?
How much harder is our work or our daily errands?
These are the questions we’ve been raising toward our community, and toward the businesses and developers who hold the keys to accessibility solutions. We believe by calling out and addressing the importance of accessibility on the Internet, we can make the online experiences of those living with a disability more effective. Internet accessibility is possible. Through our efforts, we give people with disabilities access to perhaps one of the most important tools of our modern era.
