Do Some Children With Autism Still End Up Living In Institutions?

Question: Do some children with autism still end up living in institutions?

Answer: Honestly, there has been a shift in moving away from institutions and trying to really figure out how we can support people within apartment-style homes and group homes within their own communities. There are some individuals who may need more support of a residential institution when they have challenging behaviors that the families feel are too overwhelming for them at this particular time in their lives.
