Introductory chapter

Making Homes that Work


by George Braddock and John Rowell

ISBN: 978-1-927771-01-3


$35.00

(Call for bulk pricing.)


This book offers ways of assessing and planning environments that are person-centered, and that respect the diversity of family and individual situations. It identifies patterns of activity and interaction with the environment that are common to many people with Autism Spectrum Disorder. These are the basis for the “Six Common Modifications” recommended for many persons with complex disability issues to support them to live successfully in the home. Most of the issues that families face can be improved by completing one or more of these modifications.
