Meet the team behind Mighty Able

Mighty Able is a brand dedicated to celebrating all abilities. Our number one goal is to make people feel mighty, included and supported.

Some people are faced with challenges which impact their ability to perform certain tasks such as speaking, walking and decision making, just to name a few. These are tasks many of us take for granted.

When a child is diagnosed with a disability it can be overwhelming for the parents. Our thoughts wander to “what won’t my child be able to do or achieve? and how hard will their life be?”. We often doubt our ability to be everything our child will need. But guess what, you are and your lives can be wonderful! People with disabilities are capable, valuable members of society and can achieve so much. Unfortunately in life there is a lot of focus on the things we struggle with but we are here to change that. We want you to join us in celebrating everyone’s individual abilities.

Our son Michael a.k.a Mighty Mikey has quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy, epilepsy, hearing loss, global developmental delay and a few other disabilities. We have spent a long time listening to doctors talk about the negative implications these disabilities would have on his life. We don’t look at his diagnosis that way, we spend time with him everyday working towards ensuring he has a fulfilled life.

Mikey also has a cheeky little brother Finn and an amazing dad Andy. We live in sunny Western Australia and love having dance parties daily.

We get to celebrate every little thing Mikey achieves and it’s magical. He has so many wonderful abilities and he brings so much joy and happiness to the world.

It’s time to shift the focus. Start celebrating everyone’s abilities, include everyone and support them on their journey to greatness!
