UrAbility was set up in 2013 to enable people with disabilities to succeed. We believe passionately in the proven potential of Assistive Technology (AT) to empower every student’s future.

How We Help

At UrAbility we use our expertise to leverage assistive technology information, products and training to help students learn, master and thrive, whatever their abilities and whatever their goals:

Who We Are

UrAbility was founded by Managing Director James Northridge. Challenged through childhood by dyslexia, James worked in UCD as an Education Technologist for five years before completing his MSc in Disability Studies and starting UrAbility.

Since then, UrAbility has built a highly qualified team of education specialists who screen products, provide training, and work with assistive devices and the students who use them every day.
