“Wow moments” tend to happen during the Abilities Expo, a nationwide traveling event for the disability community. A few years ago in Houston, according to Abilities Expo chairman Lew Shomer, miniature horses were on display when a young child with nonverbal cerebral palsy, seeing the animals, turned to his mother and said, “Mommy! Horses!” Shomer says, “He had never spoken before.” The event’s return to H-Town will also feature robotics, adaptive sports and high-tech gizmos that have just been unveiled or will shortly hit the market, as well as the Abilities Expo debut performance by wheelchair motocross athlete Jerry Diaz, who pulls off insane flips and half-pipe tricks.

11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Also 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. August 4 and 5. NRG Center, Hall E, 1 NRG Park. For information, call 832-667-1400 or visit abilities.com/houston. Free.
