Check out the Sweetwater Spectrum Community, a community that integrates autism spectrum-specific design.

Created to address the growing national housing crisis for adults with autism, this community in Sonoma, California integrates autism spectrum-specific design, Universal Design and Sustainable Design strategies. A highly insulated exterior envelope, radiant heating/cooling, high-performance glazing, natural ventilation and daylighting all contribute to help minimize energy use. Sloped roofs maximize solar access and support photovoltaic and solar hot water panels which offset this reduced energy load. The new community serves as an innovative, replicable model designed to address the full range of needs of individuals with autism spectrum disorders while maximizing residents’ development and independence so they can live life with purpose and dignity.
