About Us

Founded by Dustin Wright who was one of the original pioneers of remote monitoring services back in 2006, and has worked in disability services/supports for 20+ years.  Dustin is joined by an advisory council made up of people that have been in the trenches for decades in disability services and technology.  

Disability Cocoon's goal is to be the resource where people come to learn, connect, explore, collaborate, and more.  We are a catalyst for a national disability technology movement.  We will probably always be changing into something new.  

In case you were wondering, we chose the name Disability Cocoon to represent a place to come for massive transformation into something better...get it, caterpillar to butterfly...cocoon.
