Making Homes That Work
Making Homes That Work is a resource guide for families living with autism spectrum disorder and co-occuring behaviors. This guide was funded by the New York Office for People with Developmental Disabilities.

These are the basis for the "Six Common Modifications" recommended for persons with significant ASD to live successfully in the home. Most of the issues that families face can be improved by completing one more of these modifications.
