This presentation concentrates on the elements of Aging, Developmental and Cognitive issues that we should be taking into account as we continue to design spaces for humans of varying degrees that will occupy these spaces.  What considerations should we, as design professionals, take into account to create Safe, Comfortable, and Accessible spaces for everyone….and when to collaborate with a team of professionals to take it to the next level including contractor, Occupational Therapist, or other medical professional.  The end includes “next steps” for people that wish to explore further or pursue more education.
