Young adults and adults with autism who are either living at home or in a group home, require adaptations to their environment that are necessary for them to be able to access and live safely in their home setting. I will explain the process of starting from scratch and addressing sensory, behavioral and communication needs in the home. I will share how I was involved in creating a group home for 6 adults with autism in Chicago, what preparation was needed prior to the adults moving in, what adaptations were made to the house, what supports were placed in the house, how we transitioned the adults in, and what worked and what did not work. Additionally, you will see data in regards to how these supports had significant implications in behavior. Pictures will be included.

  2. The participant will be able to identify a minimum of 3 different modifications to the home that can be completed to support a person with autism to make the home more accessible in every way
  3. The participant will be able to identify a minimum of 3 ways to meet the sensory needs of a person with autism in the home environment
