Justin Bishop is a 32 year old skateboarder, who happens to be blind. At a young age, he was diagnosed with a degenerative eye condition causing him to progressively lose his vision. He has been working to help create technology that can be used to assist other blind athletes, while his goal is to enhance accessibility for the blind and visually impaired in sports and the everyday life. Justin also works as an ABA therapist, teaching children on the spectrum by developing social and motor skills through sports. Through skateboarding and ABA therapy, Justin drives for inclusion to be an important aspect in everyones life by advancing adaptive skateboarding as far as it can go, with a personal goal of introducing adaptive skateboarding into the Paralympics one day.
