This is the second publication in our multi-year initiative to focus on the housing needs of adults with autism and DD in our region, The Housing Needs of People with Autism: Six Case Examples. We are thrilled to share this in-depth presentation of the needs of a diverse group of young adults with autism. CRAAG parents, who all serve as primary caregivers and advocates for their adult-aged children, provided all content of the current report and reviewed and approved final drafts.
CRAAG couldn’t have prepared this report without the support from the University of Virginia’s Supporting Transformative Autism Research Initiative (STAR), led by faculty in the University of Virginia’s School of Education and Human Development. The STAR Initiative helped prepare this educational document by designing the questionnaire, collecting data, and compiling content into this report. The views and opinions expressed in this report do not reflect the views or positions of the University of Virginia.
STAR aims to improve the lives of people on the autism spectrum and their families through conducting ground-breaking, interdisciplinary research and developing innovative models for care, support, and education. Click for more information about UVA STAR.
