About the Author

Dafna Krouk-Gordon is the founder and President of Toward Independent Living and Learning (TILL), a not-for-profit human service agency based in Dedham, Massachusetts.

Barbara D. Jackins is a lawyer in Framingham, Massachusetts, concentrating on special needs planning, public benefits, guardianship, and trust administration.

Finding the right residential situation for an adult child with an intellectual disability doesn't have to be overwhelming. The authors share decades of experience counseling families on housing options to help parents prepare themselves and their children for a new living arrangement. Discover the universal considerations most families should face before putting plans in place:

  • Planning early
  • Residential models
  • DIY or hire an agency?
  • Costs & funding
  • Hiring staff
  • Group living
  • Legal ownership
Use this authoritative guide (full of checklists and forms) to make educated decisions and secure the housing that's best for your child and family.
