Autism Housing Network of Alberta: “Building Bridges” Lunch & Learn

May 28, 2024, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Building Bridges: Challenges and Opportunities in Delivering Neuro-Diverse Housing” invites participants to explore the intricate landscape of creating housing solutions that cater to the diverse needs of individuals across the neurological spectrum. This session serves as an open discussion with Ayrshire Group, an Alberta-based investment management firm, to delve into the complexities, hurdles, and promising prospects of designing neuro-diverse housing.

Through its Housing Impact Fund II, Ayrshire aims to deliver housing solutions within Western Canada that focus solving social, environmental, and affordability challenges, and delivering institutional quality rental stock to underserved markets.

The group learning session will focus on the inherent challenges in crafting living spaces that embrace neurodiversity. From addressing sensory sensitivities and spatial considerations to fostering inclusive communities, this session will spotlight the obstacles that developers encounter, and the innovative strategies employed to overcome them.

Moreover, “Building Bridges” isn’t just about acknowledging challenges; it’s also about illuminating the vast opportunities that arise from embracing neurodiversity in housing design. By fostering a collaborative dialogue, the session aims to illuminate the immense potential for innovation, creativity, and social impact inherent in delivering neuro-diverse housing solutions. From leveraging different building systems, to harnessing community-driven initiatives, this session will showcase how developers can play a pivotal role in shaping the future of inclusive living environments.

Join us as we embark on a journey to bridge the gap between aspiration and realization, paving the way for a world where every individual, regardless of neurodiversity, feels a sense of belonging and empowerment within their homes and communities.
