Autism Housing Pathways has produced three workbooks designed to help individuals with developmental disabilities shape a housing vision. The first two workbooks are written at an 8th grade reading level and a 1st-2nd grade reading level, respectively. The third workbook is comprised of a social story/workbook, visuals to create posters with stickers, and a set of directions and a questionnaire for helpers. The workbooks touch on preferred activities, lifestyle and location, living skills, and being a good neighbor.
