Transition to Adulthood: Home Modifications for Young Adults with Special Needs

Most parents become empty nesters at some point, when their kids grow up and move out on their own. But when a child has special needs, there’s a chance that time will never come. That doesn’t mean parents can’t give young adults with disabilities more independence. With some thoughtful modifications, it’s possible to turn your home into a multigenerational space that provides adult children the opportunity to do more for themselves, while keeping them under the same roof.

Managing Your Child’s Transition to Adulthood

As any parent of an adolescent knows, a child’s transition into adulthood presents extraordinary opportunities for growth, reflection, and responsibility. The child with special needs faces all of these changes along with the added challenges brought on by his or her individual disability. It is not unusual for a child with special needs to have a specialized set of caregivers and support organizations in place for guidance and direction through these complicated years.

Creating a Wheelchair-Friendly Home: A Complete Guide

A household can find themselves in need of a wheelchair-friendly home for a variety of reasons. Someone may experience a fall or a household member may become disabled due to an accident, injury or illness. Additionally, more and more households are simply planning for aging in place where inhabitants can eventually benefit from home modifications to prolong their time in their present homes. Even when wheelchair use may only be for a few months, there are some steps that can be taken to make a home easier to maneuver and enjoy. When wheelchair use will be long-term, it may be prudent to consider permanent, physical changes in a home that can make life easier for everyone.

What can food trucks teach us about project-based learning?

When we think of innovative companies, it’s easy to imagine an open-air tech startup with ping pong tables and free drinks and huge windows and chairs so modern you’re not sure how you’re supposed to sit in them or look at them. Sometimes I look at those spaces and think, “Man, I wish schools were more like this.” But they’re not. Schools don’t have millions in startup money flowing into making the spaces perfect. And, while these companies often look amazing, many of the startups go bankrupt within the first three years.

Meanwhile, some of the most innovative ideas are happening in a much more humble environment — in greasy, tiny kitchens parked by the side of busy streets. If you want to find innovation, look no further than your local food truck. That’s right. Food trucks. See, food trucks continue to redefine the way we view food through a fusion of flavors that are unabashedly different than typical restaurant flair. Unlike the massive tech startup world, food trucks are often nimble, small, and focused on a very distinct mission.

It has me thinking about the “food truck approach” looks like when teachers are implementing PBL units...
