Access+Ability was organized by the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. This powerful exhibition resonates deeply with The Children’s Institute, as many of the devices on display have helped create a more accessible and inclusive world for many amazing kids, including those at The Children’s Institute.

Dylan Dzikowski, 2019 graduate of The Children’s Institute of Pittsburgh, communicated his featured speech through his Accent 1000 eye gaze device, a beautiful representation of many of the accessible technology and innovations exhibited in the Access+Ability exhibit.
