I am a graduate student at the University of Minnesota researching supported
living models for parents with cognitive disabilities and their children.
Cohousing seems to be a natural environment that could work well in supporting
parents with a disability and their children. I would like to hear from both
parents with disabilities who currently reside in cohousing and/or cohousing
communities that have members who have disabilities about their experiences.
Please feel free to e-mail me at:

Thank you.
