Where science & compassion meet the challenge of autism.
Ely Center for Adult Learning
Our Commitment to Quality of Life
Established in 2004, Alpine Learning Group's Adult Program is a qualified provider through the Division of Developmental Disabilities providing ongoing, practical education and support throughout adulthood. This unique program offers comprehensive day programming services designed to promote the skills necessary for our participants to lead productive and enjoyable lives. Goals are selected based on an individual's skill level, interests and life style, and participants are taught new skills to improve integration into their communities and work environments.
State-of-the-Art Facilities Opened in 2016
With a generous donation from the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation and the support of local community organizations, Alpine Learning Group acquired property adjacent to the existing school on which to build an adult learning facility. In 2015, we opened the doors of the Ely Center for Adult Learning. The state-of-the-art, 13,000 square foot facility is the home of the Adult Day Program, and additionally serves as a community resource for care-providers of adults with autism.
