Children with physical disabilities need a home environment that meets their changing physical and social needs. But what is the best way for parents to create this type of house?

To find out, a team from the Center for Architecture and Building Science Research at the New Jersey Institute of Technology spent time with 65 families of children with disabilities.

The products of this research are a book and a companion video, both titled A House for All Children. The book provides practical guidelines for creating a safe and supportive home and offers strategies for meeting the social and emotional needs of children with disabilities. The video offers house tours and interviews with six families who customized their homes to meet the needs of their children with disabilities.

This website provides excerpts from the eight chapters of the book and highlight clips from each of the six family stories featured in the video.
