"What's going to happen to my child when I can no longer care for them, or when I pass away?" This is the number one question that parents of adult children with developmental and intellectual disabilities ask themselves. In this talk David Buuck reframes the issue of disability, and reimagines housing for adults with developmental or intellectual challenges. David Buuck and his wife lived in a residential community for adults with intellectual disabilities while he earned his Masters in Human Services. The people with whom they lived transformed what David and Amy imagined what the best possible life could look like for their family. In 2015, he started CASS Housing, a nonprofit organization which partners with families to create customized long-term housing and support solutions for people with disabilities.

The Buucks live in Fort Wayne with their three children. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
