"All Kinds Accessibility Consulting began helping me during a time when I was coming to terms with my disabilities and struggling to see how my future would look because of it. Not only did Shelby model for me what disabled 'success' looks like, but they also made themselves available for when I needed support gaining the personal accommodations that I need. Shelby's practice was a huge asset for me when putting together an accessibile event for autistics, and in the process, she helped me have a deeper understanding of what non-ableist collaboration looks like. All Kinds Accessibility Consulting is an excellent choice whether you are looking for small day-to-day assistance or to put on a large event."

"Many folks claim to care about accessibility and inclusion, but are unwilling to engage in the actual work that's needed to create accessible, inclusive spaces. Shelby is the real deal. I would go as far to say that working with Shelby changed the way I think about and approach accessibility in my work as an organizer.
Her consultation was essentially a top-to-bottom reassessment of our entire event. Shelby was invested from start to finish, offering deeply insightful solutions to both bigger picture items and finer details in the ways that we approached accessibility. Her drive and passion to improve and create higher standards of access in an environment was an invaluable resource to our community."
