NYU's Assistive Technology Innovation Lab
Human-Centered Research & Design
The ABILITY Project is an interdisciplinary research space dedicated to the intersection between disability and technology.
We work to foster collaboration between engineers, designers, educators, speech and occupational therapists, and individuals with disabilities. We work in the development space of adaptive and assistive technologies, as well as teaching and learning of technical skills and engagement.
The ABILITY Project provides NYU students opportunities to practice humancentered design with ongoing research projects, in which students manage the ethics and sensitivities involved in problemsolving for real people.
Resources including classes, grants, competitions, and events are made avaiable to students. Continuing developments include a Disabilities Studies minor available to NYU undergraduate students and a master’s degree.
