Maryland Apartment Building Plans To House Adults With Disabilities.

February 12, 2019

The Washington Post (2/12, Bahrampour) reports on the construction of “a seven-story, 70-unit apartment building in Rockville Town Center that will reserve a quarter of its units for adults with disabilities.” The piece mentions that the CDC estimates approximately 1 in 59 children are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, “and in the next 10 years an estimated 500,000 people with autism will enter adulthood, with almost 424,000 on waiting lists for residential services.” The construction in Rockville, Maryland is similar to communities across the country of parents developing “their own solutions and create variations on housing concepts” for adults with autism.
