The Center for Architecture and Building Science Research at the New Jersey Institute of Technology produced both a book and a video to help parents of children with a physical disability create a supportive home environment.
One goal of the center is to help people with chronic diseases and disabilities remain in their homes and live as independently as possible. Children with disabilities such as cerebral palsy, paraplegia and spina bifida are increasingly likely to live at home with their parents for three reasons:
The center developed, printed, distributed and marketed a 120-page book, A House for All Children.
The center also produced, distributed and marketed a companion video, also entitled A House for All Children.
The research team developed a website that describes the project and features excerpts from both the book and video.
