Shire House offers residential programs, community activities and services.
Our Residential Programs are specifically for Neurodiverse, Asperger, and high-
functioning Autism adults.
Our Community Activities and Services are open to the adult Autism Spectrum and
Our Shire House Vision is a community with friendships, supports, and services that will

Neurodiverse adults where friendships and supports will be forged as our young adults
begin their journey into self-management and independent living.
Our Shire House Philosophy is that with appropriate interventions, methods, techniques
and supports, our clients will learn to cope, adapt, and thrive.
Our Residential Programs teach our clients to understand and manage their diagnosis and any other underlying issues so to reach their own level of self-management and independence.
We tailor our menu of Supportive Services to the client’s individual needs of supports.Our clients are expected to be working and or attending school within a reasonable timeframe the professionals working with the client deem as appropriate. We run our residential programs out of a large house with a co-ed college dorm setting which can accommodate eight clients at a time, each in their private bedroom. Because our programs are year-round the applicant may join our community once the application process has been completed and approved.
