Ability Life Solutions helps you worry less so you can live more.
Life with a developmental disability can be overwhelming, but we are here to help you. When you have the right resources at your fingertips, you can stress less and enjoy life more. Ability Life Solutions’s all-in-one resource will provide you with autism support and community. Education is the key to alleviating stress!
Bob DeMarco, Special Needs Parent
Ability Life Solutions co-founder Bob DeMarco will be able to guide you to find answers to your special needs questions because he has “been there, done that.” While his career started with Paramount Domestic Television composing music for popular series like “Hard Copy” and “Entertainment Tonight,” his life’s focus shifted in 2006 when his son, Dominic, was diagnosed with autism. Bob’s search for online resources addressing the autism spectrum came up empty, and the seed for Ability Life Solutions was planted. As a parent faced with the ongoing joys and challenges that children with special needs present, Bob is acutely aware of the need for self-care. Online support groups for parents are an integral part of Ability Life Solutions because he knows how much you need community. For Bob, this is more than a job: This is his passion and a compilation of the resources he wished he could have had when his son was first diagnosed.
Tresha Allen, The Advocate
Even though she isn’t a special needs parent, Tresha Allen is a fierce advocate who knows the autism community well. She has dedicated her life to nonprofit work, and helping people who have developmental disabilities is her passion. There is absolutely nothing she would rather do! Her 30+ years of service includes work with The Arc of Ventura County and New Horizons in San Fernando Valley. Tresha managed the second largest supported employment program in California, building relationships with agencies and people across the state. Working directly with families and individuals living with special needs gave her unique insight into the gaps in services available. Her background and knowledge makes her an advocate who can help those on the autism spectrum find the resources they need.
A special needs parent and a disability advocate paired up, and Ability Life Solutions was born. The first step in Bob and Tresha’s plan to become a global online resource for families with special needs is this video library of resources and information. In the future, Ability Life Solutions will offer services such as online membership communities, financial planning services, consulting, food guides, travel services, and much more. Stay tuned!
