Through a grant from the Boston Society of Architects (BSA), I created a checklist of design features necessary to design integrated classrooms for children with learning disabilities such as autism. The research publication entitled “Integrating the Autistic Child into Mainstream Education, Design andDenise Arnold Workbook picture Policy Coming Together to Meet I. D. E. A. Legislation,” presents school planners, architects, and educators with a checklist of environmental enhancements necessary to foster integrated learning environments. I participated in an international housing forum hosted by the Kuenstlerhaus in Vienna, Austria entitled Housing Models Worldwide: Experimentation and Everyday Life. The exhibit and Denise Arnold Workbook picturecatalog was curated by Oliver Elser and Michael Rieper and included participation from noted architecture critics. After serving the City of Chicago as the Program Director of the Architectural Services Unit of the Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities, where I was charged with rewriting building and zoning codes to foster greater housing options for people with disabilities, I founded a woman-owned accessibility code consultancy. I am expanding my practice by conducting national educational seminars on Universal Design, accessibility codes and regulations, and better housing options for people with disabilities.
