For 60 years, Ivymount has created nationally recognized programs and partnerships for people with autism and other developmental disabilities as well as their families. The goal in all our programs is to help children, students, and young adults achieve their highest level of development and independence. In addition to creating our own education and outreach programs, Ivymount forms partnerships with other organizations and researchers, often functioning as a training site.
