There are suggestions for home modifications and adaptive design which can be essential in allowing individuals with disabilities to live in their own homes, with as much independence as possible. It may involve adapting or modifying a home for a child who has a physical disability and uses a wheelchair or crutches, or it might include making room changes for someone who has a hearing or vision disability.
We provide resources on home modifications, adaptive design, and safety for families who have children with special healthcare needs.
