Letting Go and Moving On
Housing Options for Individuals with Disabilities

Wednesday, May 26  |  7:00 pm - 8:30 pm  |  Zoom Webinar

Our society generally regards “moving out” as developmentally appropriate. However, according to statistics, 70% of young adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities never move out of their familys’ homes because housing is scarce and too expensive (EasterSeals, 2016).

No matter the complexity of an adult’s disability, there is a living arrangement to satisfy his/her medical, emotional, physical and social needs. Families are even custom-designing the perfect housing “fit” for their family member.


PARTICIPANTS ATTENDING THIS WORKSHOP WILL:

  • Learn the general housing options available for different levels of ability.
  • Consider the pre-requisites needed for an adult with special needs to live in a supportive environment, i.e., beneficial location, medical supports, independent living skills, and so on.
  • Gauge the financial responsibility of each housing option.
  • Recognize the importance of location, location, location.
  • Discover non-traditional modes of housing for adults with special needs.
