The Future is Open: Expanding Services To Adults With Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

In 1977, Carmen B. Pingree started a program to assist children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Since then, Valley Behavioral Health has expanded on the amazing work of the Pingree Program creating the Carmen B. Pingree Autism Center of Learning. In 2021, Valley Behavioral Health opened the Adult Autism Center to expand our services to individuals 22 years and older. In 2023, the Adult Autism Center was renamed the Adult Ability Center of Lifetime Learning and our services have expanded even further to include all those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We provide evidence-based treatment in an effort to help them continue their growth and knowledge throughout life.

Programs for Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Our programs are thoughtfully designed to empower and enrich the lives of the members of our community. We believe in fostering a community that celebrates diversity, encourages growth, and provides meaningful opportunities for individuals to thrive.

The skills the individual develops are both verbal and non-verbal. These skills help our members with their ability to socialize, communicate, and any area where the individual needs specific help. The Adult Ability Center has board-certified behavioral analysts (BCBA) that are trained to provide behavior analysis and research. Giving the individuals the most effective and up-to-date education.

Utah Autism & Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Resources

Over the years, our Utah Autism Center has seen a gap in the services and resources offered to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities who are in need of significant care and needs. When an individual with autism reaches 22 years old, they lose the support of educational services from the state. Once they lose this support, the individuals and parents have the challenge to figure out the next steps. The Adult Autism Center can pave the next path for these individuals, by offering specialized programs and care from professional ABA therapists and employees.
