Who We Are
"I think that InvisAbilities is extremely important because it not only strives to create a healthy learning environment at ISB but also extends its activities to promoting inclusivity in our global community."
Founded by a team of ISB students in 2018 InvisAbilities was created to build a sense of community between students with and without exceptionalities including Autism Spectrum Disorder and Down Syndrome at the International School of Bangkok (ISB). The creation of this community was thought to be essential to foster inclusion at ISB. To work towards building these relationships a mission was established of: Raisin Awareness, Fostering Inclusion and Making Buddies. To fulfill this mission InvisAbilities has worked with the intensive needs classroom at ISB, held an array of awareness day events, partnered with StepsWithTheera, helped out with TriKids Thailand and Junior Special Olympics Thailand, and much more. Seeing high success in the second academic semester of the 2018-2019 school year InvisAbilities hopes to reach out to other organizations, school, and institutions to establish similar InvisAbilities clubs to further develop a sense of community between those with and without exceptionalities in the greater Bangkok area and eventually around the world.
