Autism Organizations In Utah

Other organizations involved in Utah’s autism community are members of the Council

The Utah Autism Initiative (UAI) is a multi-agency committee made up of state agency representatives and parents of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This committee was created by Dr David Sundwall, Executive Director of the Utah Department of Health (UDOH), in spring of 1997. The UAI objectives are to:

  • Foster communication amongst the agencies which provide services for those with ASD
  • Increase awareness of the services being offered and the gaps in these services
  • Make recommendations to improve the quality of life and outcomes for individuals with ASD

The UAI committee wrote this precautionary statement to help parents make treatment choices. You can find more information at the Health Department Medical HOME Portal.
