2011/08/10 Affordable, Accessible, & Integrated Housing Options for People with Intellectual Developmental Disabilities (2-Part Series) Jay Klein &
Joe Wykowski

For most of us, home is the place where we take refuge from the world, the space where we freely express ourselves, and where we decide who to invite in. Too often, people with intellectual developmental disabilities (IDD) are not included in even the most basic decisions about where and with whom they live. However, there are programs that are making strides in increasing the number of people with IDD who live in affordable, accessible, and integrated housing that they control. This webinar includes best and promising practices drawn from real examples, studies, and lessons learned from experts working on housing issues and policy at the national, state and local levels. Jay Klein, Associate Clinical Professor in the Social Work School in the College for Public Programs at Arizona State University and Joe Wykowski, Executive Director of Community Vision in Portland Oregon share their valuable knowledge, insight, and guidance and address how to overcome the challenging barriers that impede individuals with IDD from achieving the goals of self-direction and community integration.
