Moving Forward

So the point of taking the time to reflect on what we've learned at UDS5 was the importance of us understanding that we're not only trying to make homes usable and safer for individuals, but we're trying to make a dent in our communities and in our culture (just as others are trying to do in their communities). The joy of walking around town, buying things at local businesses, and participating in leisure activities are important parts of our lives. Universally designed places, products, and programs are more than just making accommodations for those with specific needs, it's about allowing people to enjoy the experience of life through the avenue of good, functional design.

Here are a few more posts on Day 1 and Day 2 of our experience at UD Summit 5 last week!
