Emanating from the research, the design guidelines translate the findings into a variety of new housing designs and home modifications that may create a more responsive and supportive environment for adults with autism. The design guidelines encompass the full range of elements that comprise a home beginning with neighbourhood selection and housing type moving through outdoor environments and individual rooms and culminating in technology and materials. The guidelines reflect the ten Quality of Life Design Goals presented in Chapter 3 with specific recommendations linked to the particular goal(s) it addresses. Since autism is a spectrum condition, appropriate design solutions will vary considerably for different individuals. By connecting each design guideline with a specific goal(s), autistic adults, design professionals, housing providers and others can focus on new housing designs and modifications most relevant to an individual’s needs and aspirations.
