Everyone Means Every One: Home Design Solutions for Individuals on the Autism Spectrum or Transitioning from Homelessness

February 25, 2020 11:45 AM Trade, InterContinental Miami Concurrent Session

Human-centered principles are helping meet housing needs among some of our most challenging populations. This panel will be a conversation with two remarkable leaders designing housing with very specific needs in mind. Laura Rossbert has focused on trauma informed design in housing for adults and children experiencing homelessness, and Denise Resnik has created a residential community for adults with autism. Laura and Denise will discuss their research, advocacy and practice to create more inclusive communities and meet the housing needs for those often left out of the conversation.
