 Theresa lives in an accessible one bedroom, garden style apartment. She rents her unit with assistance from a housing choice voucher and received a reasonable accommodation for an exception to the maximum subsidy allowed by the voucher for a one bedroom unit in Fairfax County. Theresa receives consumer-directed personal assistance services funded by the Medicaid Waiver. She uses different kinds of assistive technology to increase her independence.

This video was filmed in Summer 2016 as part of a six video series highlighting people with developmental disabilities living in integrated community settings. The series was done by The Arc of Northern Virginia in combination with videographer David Buerk and made possible with grant funding from the Virginia Housing Development Authority.
