We have a 48 year old autistic adult son living in a grouphome in NJ and are starting the process of looking for similar placements in Chicagoland. His grouphome requires 24 X 7 supervision. So far, our search has not been very encouraging for placement here. We would appreciate hearing from anyone who has had success placing an autistic adult in a grouphome environment here. Since there are about 3 times the number of adults (22 years old & up) with autism then there are children with autism, we need to encourage our legislators to address this problem in a more forceful manner.
