Patrick’s Place follows Patrick, a friendly, adventurous 28 year old diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder,  as he moves into his own apartment in his parent’s basement. Patrick’s parents hope that this transition will help him become more independent and will calm his anxiety about moving entirely to his own place in the future. As we get to know Patrick, we learn how his family and formal supports work together to support him to have a full life with increasing independence.
