Midwest Ability Summit
The Midwest Ability Summit (formerly the Kansas City Ability Expo) is collaboration between several metro-wide organizations. Their purpose is to create a truly metro-wide ability expo for those with disabilities and older adults, their families, caregivers, healthcare professionals and as an educational opportunity for the entire Greater Kansas City community.
At the Ability Summit, resources will be provided for all of these groups, ranging from educational seminars, to booths for service providers who provide products or services to the disabled community, to booths featuring governmental and not-for-profit agencies. In addition, there will be adaptive sports, exercise and recreational demonstrations. The focus of the expo is to have a “one-stop” opportunity for persons with disabilities, their caregivers/families and/or professionals who serve persons with disabilities to gain information about valuable resources and products. Attendees will have an opportunity to explore the booths, talk to representatives and trial equipment. Their goal is to bring together persons with disabilities and the organizations, the products, resources and programs and artists with disabilities to assist with leading full and productive lives.
