Examples of Adults with A/I/DD
who have found their home and support system to thrive
For individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities (I/DD), there is an extreme shortage of affordable, accessible housing and access to the supports needed to thrive. We need to understand not only the barriers to access, but also the preferences of this population in order to plan for the future. Data should drive policy and funding solutions. Neuro-Inclusive Utah will inform stakeholders on the variety of residential options and collect data on the demand. Through that knowledge, Utah leaders can take action to increase neuro-inclusive housing across the state.
