Rosenblum, Todd
Exceptional Parent, v41 n7 p12-14 Jul 2011
Bringing a newborn home from the hospital can come with stress for any parent. Coming home with twins can be double the stress. This article shares the story of a couple faced with this situation 12 years ago with the birth of twins, one was born with complications. They lived in a Colonial until the twins were almost five years old, at which time they realized they needed a permanent housing solution that would meet their long-term needs. Their initial meetings with Architect Todd Rosenblum of Adaptive Architecture opened up doors they didn't think previously possible. Rosenblum's experience in dealing with Trust Funds was a huge benefit and his ideas of what to incorporate into a home being designed for a child with severe disabilities were endless. They agree that hiring an architect with experience designing accessible homes is the only way to go if parents have a child with limited mobility and capabilities. They said it's also very important to hire a general contractor who knows what he is doing because the intricacies of building an accessible home are unlike any other.
