About us

Our mission

We are on a mission to connect, inform, and empower every parent caring for a child with a disability. We’re doing that by ensuring no parent feels left alone, information is easy to share, and newly diagnosed families have access to the insight of those who have been there before.

Our Mission

Our Why

Our why

We are special needs parents, love special needs parents, or were raised by special needs parents.

What gets us out of bed in the morning is the dream of a global community that celebrates, supports, informs, and empowers parents of a child with a disability during their journey that is everything but ‘ordinary’.

Meet our Founding Families

Summer Petrosius

Hi, I’m Summer, CEO and co-founder of the AbleFinder app. The idea for AbleFinder came to me while working as a speech pathologist for children with disabilities. I was shocked at the limited contact that their parents had with peers and the enormous impact this had on the family's quality of life, so I decided to do something about it.

The AbleFinder app is a safe, private, and judgement-free space where mums and dads can meet, chat, and learn from other parents who just “get it”. Designed to bridge the gap between coping and thriving, it's about educating, empowering and uniting parents so they can advocate for their children and access the support their family needs.
