Whether your disability is physical, sensory, learning, developmental or a combination, Abilities Expo strives to provide the products and services to help you meet and overcome your daily challenges. In addition, our Assistive Technology Showcase gives you the opportunity to test drive cutting-edge devices to determine what meets your individual needs. If it's smaller ticket products that you want, there will also be ingenious, low-cost inventions and retail products.

Dance Like No One is Watching

Chelsie Hill and Rollettes have a thrilling, heart-thumping series of dance events planning for Boston's disability community. It kicks off the day before the Expo on Thursday, September 7 with a special Rollettes Experience and continues Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Abilities Expo with their fun, all-inclusive hip-hop dance performance and instruction. It's great for the body and even better for the spirit!

All Work and No Play…

It's not enough for us to provide a forum where you can gain knowledge and access to life-altering products. We want you to have a blast, too! There's sports, dance, music, celebrities, assistance dogs, therapy horses, face painting for kids and more. Experience it from the sidelines or—and here's our preference—join in the fun!
