Ongoing education and support are critical to helping adults with autism reach their full potential and experience the highest possible quality of life. The Adult Autism Center partners with families to help their adult children progress and succeed in their personal goals. Watch our video below to hear from families who have worked with us and how we can help.
The Adult Autism Center will be the first of its kind in Utah. It will be an extension of the evidence-based treatment we provide at the existing Pingree Center but focused on daily living and vocational skills. The program will utilize applied behavior analysis (ABA) for providing treatment.
The goal will be increased independence for each client based on their abilities and interests. We will provide access to the community via internship, volunteer, and supported employment opportunities.
This program will provide a place where individuals with significant needs can continue to get quality treatment and work towards independence and increased quality of life.
When people living with autism transition into adulthood and no longer have access to educational services, they (and their caretakers) are faced with an entirely new set of challenges. Ongoing education and support is critical to helping individuals with autism reach their full potential and experience the highest possible quality of life.
