Neuro-Inclusive Cohousing Coming to the Lehigh Valley

Cohousing is community designed to foster connection. Physical spaces allow neighbors to easily interact with others just outside private homes. Common areas, including the kitchen, dining space and gardens bring people together. Collaborative decision-making builds relationships.

Intellectual Developmental Disorders (IDDs) are differences that are usually present at birth and that uniquely affect the trajectory of the individual’s physical, intellectual, and/or emotional development. IDDs often impact everyday social and life skills.

The basic idea of neuro-inclusivity, is that differences don’t have to only be looked at as weaknesses. They’re not problems that need to be “fixed” or “cured.” They’re simply variations of the human brain. 

We create solutions.

We’re committed to addressing the problems our community faces.
