First Meeting Held to Discuss Autism Pilot Program

The first meeting was held in Salt Lake last week to discuss the autism pilot project that was created through the passage of HB272 this past legislative session. Through the pilot program, approximately 200 children across the state of Utah will gain access to applied behavior analysis. Children must be between the ages of 2 and five years old and parents must be able to provide proof of a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder.

The Utah Department of Health is holding a series of meetings across Utah to focus on the design of the pilot program. Meetings will be held in Logan, Ogden, Price, Provo, Salt Lake City, and St. George. Parts of the waiver that will implement the program are flexible. The health department would like input from families, providers, and state agencies about those items which are flexible.

This is an important opportunity to have your say and share your knowledge. Additional information is available on the Department’s Medicaid Autism Waiver website:

You can also sign up on the website to receive updates for new information as it becomes available.

Join Us for a Jane’s Walk

May 5, 2012
4:00 pmto5:00 pm

In partnership with the Wasatch Regional Coronation Council for Community Transportation, the DLC will be hosting a Jane’s Walk around Salt Lake City’s Central Station. The Walk will focus on how to successfully find your way through the station and transfer from buses to light rail or trains, especially for those with visual impairments. The Walk will take place on Saturday, May 5th. We will meet at the Intermodal Hub (340 S. 600 W.) at 4 PM.

The DLC will also be teaming with the Utah Independent Living Center and the Disabled Rights Action Committee on a Walk from the Millcreek Trax station (210 W. 3300 S.) to UILC (3445 S Main). The Walk will highlight the challenges around safely accessing housing and social and human service agencies in the neighborhood. Stay tuned for updates on the date and time.

The mission of the Jane Jacobs Walk organization is to help people walk, observe, and connect with their built environment. Think of a Jane Jacobs Walk as a moving conversation: a way to engage community members with the people and places that make your city great, or perhaps a way to observe what works and what doesn’t. The focus of a Walk can be anything (architecture, local culture and history, city planning, local cuisine, nature, etc.) as long as it gets people walking, observing their surroundings, and connecting with each other. The important thing is to showcase areas of your city, all the while getting people out of their cars, slowing down, and observing their surroundings.

For more details on these walks or to find one happening in your community, check out www.janejacobswalk.org/category/cities/saltlakecity or www.janejacobswalk.org/category/cities/provo2012. Finally, please spread the word far and wide We’d love to walk with you!
