Affordable Adoption Program among people with disabilities
The World Institute on Disability (WID) is working alongside the California Emerging Technology Fund (CETF) to
market affordable internet access for people with disabilities in Southern California. The digital divide is prevalent
in the disability community, the Pew Research Center reports that only about a quarter of Americans with
disabilities (26%) say they have high-speed internet at home, a smartphone, a desktop or laptop computer, and a
tablet, compared with 44% of Americans who don’t have a disability.
