More About The Organisation

About the Service

About the Organisation

Abilia gives people with special needs the power to become independent and take control of their daily lives. Based on more than 40 years’ experience and supported by research evidence, we know that Assistive Technology helps people to get structure over their day, communicate with people, control appliances in their home and call for attention. We believe that everyone should have the same opportunities to participate in society on their terms and are passionate about enabling people access to a more fulfilling life. Our company name highlights how important this is to us ‘Abilia’ stems from the word 'ability'.

Inclusive Services

Additional and Special Educational Needs

How do you aim to meet the unique needs of the child?

Needs can differ depending on the person's situation and age. The individual may have Down's syndrome, cerebral palsy, ADHD/ADD, or autism spectrum disorder. Or they may have suffered a spinal cord or brain injury in an accident, suffered a stroke, or begun showing signs of dementia. Whatever the background to their needs, everyone has the right to live an independent life while interacting with others. The focus may be on making it easier for a young person to handle their school day or on giving an elderly person the ability to live at home longer.

How do you promote positive relationships and ensure good, ongoing communication with families?

Many of our approximately 100 employees have personal experience with disability, either professionally or in relation to a loved one. This not only makes us more committed, but also gives us broad expertise in Assistive Technology. We know how important access to our products is to our users and therefore put great focus on providing quality service and support. Abilia develops, manufactures and sells aids for individuals with disabilities in the areas of communication, cognition and environment control & alarm
