Understood is a non-profit dedicated to serving the millions of families of kids who learn and think differently.
Since 2014, Understood has served millions of families of kids who learn and think differently. In 2012, our Workplace program was created and has helped thousands of people with all types of disabilities find meaningful employment at inclusive companies.
Our programs for Families, Educators, and Young Adults focus on empowering people who learn and think differently and those who support them, offering customized, accessible resources and a compassionate community. Our Workplace program helps organizations across industries create inclusive workplaces, by developing and implementing best-in-class disability inclusion programs so they can hire, advance, and retain people with disabilities.
