Autism and Design 

03-29-2013 09:36 AM

Over the past thirty years the incidence of autism has climbed from 1 in 10,000 children in the 1970s to the present rate of 1 in 88 (CDC). With the spike in numbers of children with autism, a spike in the number of adults with autism will follow causing parents, social workers, health care providers, service providers and others to wrestle with how best to support this rapidly growing segment of our population. Recently, attention has begun to focus on developing supportive residential environments that address the specific needs of post-school-age autistic adults: over the past year a series of national town hall meetings conducted by a consortium of autism groups, housing agencies, developers, service providers and parents of adults with autism have identified housing as a primary concern. This webinar provides instruction in evidence-based design for residential environments for adults with autism and other cognitive disabilities. This May 6, 2013 presentation is a part of the ongoing Housing Knowledge Community research webinar series.
