- Do research on Autism. Here you go! Buy resources here. You have to Ethically.
- Do you desire supportive or non-supportive housing. Go for Non-supportive if you function highly. Supportive housing drives me nuts! To be completely honest.
- Location? Where you want to live?
When applying to ads?
- Be Honest
- Call or email the landlord
What not to do?
- Do not be rude
- Do not give all your personal information
- Do not message multiple times
- Confirm Rent price
- Is anyone else living there?
- Is smoking allowed?
- Is there a bus stop nearby
- Do you limit any legal rights? If so why? If you get legal limitations on your rental immediately legally choke them out. Sometimes we have to be mean to have moral authority. This is how Autistic people get in to situations of housing abuse. Parents will not bail you out!
