PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
October 30, 2018
I completed a survey from the Disability Law Center which provides a decent description on my thoughts on addressing those residents with special needs. Go to: disabilitylawcenter.org. Warning: Wix indicates that this is an unencrypted website which makes it easier to steal passwords if you use them. It may be possible to call the Center directly to obtain a copy of this survey at 800-662-9080.
My basic approach to addressing the needs of people with special needs has been to provide case management services and networking with agencies such as Utah Vocational Rehabilitation. There is a crucial need to provide much earlier treatment and intervention in the public school system for children with special needs from early diagnosis to treatment services. There is also a growing need to begin to design many more housing accommodations that will address residents who are and will be experiencing physical challenges.
