We know businesses and services like yours strive to be inclusive. Great progress is being made for physical accessibility, but do you know how you can help customers when their disability is not physical?
Our research shows that people with ‘invisible’ disabilities, like intellectual disability or autism, are a significant customer group but face several challenges. Check out some of the statistics! For more details on our research, visit the Research page.
