Housing Through an Autism Lens

housing and people

This document captures the patterns and insights of housing through an autism lens. It describes why we gathered participants and partners from the autistic housing system in this Solutions Lab and what we did to explore the legislative, programmatic, and lived experience of autistic adults in housing.
We hope that you can use this document to inform your work in bettering housing for autistic adults and/or adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We intend to present the challenge of securing safe, suitable, and supportive housing for autistic adults and spark your curiosity into how we can develop solutions. We would also like to extend a sincere thank you to all the partners, participants and, in particular, the autistic advisors as well as the many people who contributed their stories. Without them, this project would not be possible.
