Neuro-Inclusive Framework

The Neuro-Inclusive Housing Framework outlines the three distinct elements to consider when creating a residential solution. Each element can be led by one organization or in partnership with others: housing developers to build the housing, Medicaid-approved service providers offer the needed individualized supports, and existing community-based organization can offer supportive amenities for the property.  Various choices for development and examples are outlined in the Housing Market Guide of the A Place in the World report
