DAISI Network is a centralized, dynamic, and interactive web-based mobile application. DAISI is an acronym for “diverse and inclusive service review of information network.”
Utilizing network impact framework, DAISI Network is specially designed and created out of a need for a centralized and functional service review of information for families and individuals with disabilities. DAISI Network allows families and individuals with disabilities to search broadly for businesses such as schools, clinics, childcare, and restaurants to find and connect with local businesses that can support unique needs.
Through network impact, the application elevates the voices of families and individuals with disabilities regarding services with the power of technology.
