Autism Housing Pathways has received a generous grant of $2,000 from the Rotary Club of Winchester to produce visual supports for group homes.
Many adults with developmental disabilities have trouble processing language, and need visual supports, such as photos or illustrations, to follow directions. With good visual supports, many people can independently engage in basic self-care, like showering, and household tasks, such as doing laundry.
Group homes generally do not have adequate funds to have trained staff create the visuals needed, and people go without. This grant will allow Autism Housing Pathways to develop visuals for a core group of self-care and household tasks that will be made available to group homes at a price well below what it would cost an agency to develop the visuals in-house.
