This presentation will provide the qualitative findings of a needs assessment conducted in Newfoundland and Labrador (NL), Canada, exploring the experiences of adults with autism attempting to secure and maintain housing. The research team interviewed adults with ASD, parents and caregivers of adults with ASD, and service providers to adults with ASD. These interviews explored the current needs, barriers and experiences participants faced when accessing and maintaining housing across four regional health authorities. Thematic analysis of the interview transcripts reviewed three key themes: accessibility, developmentally appropriate practices, and persisting discrimination and vulnerability.
