This prototype was reviewed and play-tested by Professor Emily Messina, Director of the Therapeutic Recreation for Eastern Washington University.

A 1940s Gumshoe Detective-style mystery set in urban Chicago. 

The ASD guardians would like Hawke Robinson to come to Tacoma to implement this program plan, but due to the logistics (he resides in Spokane Washington on the other side of the state), has not yet been able to implement this program. The PAVE group does not have a formal facility, they utilize churches and other ASD guardians' homes for some activities, but generally arrange to meet at facilities for activities periodically. This is one of the reasons why The RPG Research Trailer would be very useful in helping to actually implement programs such as this.
