Courses & Community
Learn about universal design & housing.
We welcome all individuals, families, professionals, and students to join our free private community discussion.
These courses will be evolving in 2023.
Scroll down to see what we offer. You’ll notice two courses that don’t fit the focus on universal design: one for home modifications & one for task adaptations. This is to help people where they are while making a case for universal accessibility as a long-term solution.
Our flagship course, “Design Guidelines for Universally Accessible Homes” is still in the works. We need a lot of visuals to complete it, and we’re still working on funding to make that possible. If you purchase an All Access Pass, you’ll receive access when it’s finished.
