Eugene, Oregon
Through my experience working in residential services and living with my brother who had autism and intellectual disabilities, I became aware of the potential impact of technology for enhancing the independence and self-determination of people with disabilities and helping with the challenges of caregiving. I started Cognitopia to provide innovative, cognitively accessible life management applications to people who see the world a little differently.
