SMS Guidebook Adult LivingThe New PRISMS Guidebook
of Residential Housing Options for Adults with SMS!

PRISMS is excited to announce the publication of "A Smith-Magenis Guidebook: Exploring Adult Residential Living." This guidebook is available at no charge on the PRISMS website as a downloadable PDF file (see link below), with hard copies available from PRISMS for a nominal fee.

Recognizing the need to support those with Smith-Magenis Syndrome beyond school-age years, PRISMS formed a workgroup chartered to explore residential life post "high school" and to create a publication for the SMS community. This group included parents of adults with SMS and professionals skilled in developing residential services.

The guidebook includes information about a variety of residential programs, both in the home and in the community, helpful "how-to" suggestions for finding support and funding, and case studies contributed by families from across the country. These case studies provide personal insights about the benefits and challenges of different living situations. Also touched on are how these young adults spend their days.

Identifying the residential setting that best meets the needs of an individual with SMS is a personal decision for each family to explore and settle on. The easy to read guidebook is organized to help families navigate this difficult and time-consuming process.
