In our line of work, we see heroic stories of People with Disability (PwD) all the time. But we have our own heroes as well, within APD. Nearly 35% of our staff is differently-abled. They are an inspiration, not just because they have overcome extraordinary obstacles but also because they are valued professionals.
Disability is a condition that does not define a person's abilities. Our service recipients are proof that possibilities are endless if you have access to opportunity. Our work at APD is to create an inclusive ecosystem and support every person with disability an equal chance to live a life of dignity and independence.
