In the last few years, the epidemic of autism and forms of ADD have been talked about a lot among kids. But what we don't talk about or know much about is what happens to these kids when they get older.
There is a brand new apartments called First-Place Phoenix.
The 81,000-square-foot, $15.4 million project was designed to support adults with autism in living more independently. It combines 55 apartments, a residential training program and a leadership institute for medical professionals and researchers. Residents ranging from their early 20s to mid 40s.
The game room with the Arizona Cardinals theme is popular with new residents. The apartments come with their own kitchens with high-end appliances, but the decked-out kitchen on the first floor is another spot many residents hang out.
And did you know this?!
This is a cool thing to help adults thrive who have autism and something to be super proud of when it comes being a Phoenix resident!
