Autism Speaks Launches National Housing and Support Survey

Within the next decade, a minimum of 500,000 individuals with autism will enter adulthood. Many of these individuals will require access to the adult services system — a system that can have exceedingly long waiting lists and few autism-specific supports for adults on the autism spectrum.
Autism Speaks is responding to this dilemma with a first-of-its-kind national survey to identify the current and future housing and residential support needs of the autism community. The survey will poll individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) ages 14 and older and their families/caregivers to identify the type of home and support services that they may need both now and in the future.
