The Young Men of Marram Place
Johnston, Diana Armatage
Exceptional Parent, v40 n3 p16-17 Mar 2010
Bucky is 29 years old. Jesse is 27 is years old. Paul is 23 years old. They have lived together at Marram Place, a four-bedroom house, for over a year and have become best friends. Each works 20 hours per week in the community for his own spending money. After work, the guys walk, swim, work on computers, help with the housework, deliver a disabled neighbor's mail to her door, and paint. Their work illustrates this article. These artists are city guys who like living close to the center of town. Making life good for three young men who require 24/7 support with their social, communication, and daily living skills is the main goal of Marram Place. This article is the short version of how six involved parents put together an independent housing plan for their adult sons with autism and the lessons they learned that may be of use to other families.
