Alyssa Burnett Adult Life Center

Adult Life Skills Program

Seattle Children's Hospital

UPDATED: March 14, 2023

Seattle Children’s Alyssa Burnett Adult Life Center offers lifelong learning for people 18 and older with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities. We help you build on your strengths, gain independence, connect with others and take part in the larger community in a meaningful way.

For some students, this means cooking dinner at home for the first time or showing off Zumba moves at a family wedding. Others make their first friend at the center. Some discover a talent for sports or a passion for art. With new skills and confidence, some start on the path to a job. Our goal is for you to lead the most fulfilling life possible.

You can create your own schedule from a range of activities and classes all year long in art, recreation, health, fitness and life skills. For people with challenging behaviors, we offer assessment and treatment using a proven method called applied behavior analysis. To meet the special needs of people with autism, our center provides structure, visual cues and a sensory-sensitive space.
