The Adults and Elders Program aims to improve health services for adults and elders with developmental disabilities through developing training materials for health care professionals, community-based residential providers, and family members; conducting research to assess the status of service delivery; and advocating for systems change. General goals of this program are to increase the awareness of the needs of adults with developmental disabilities, develop health promotion and intervention programs, provide materials and training related to self-advocacy, and build the capacity of health professionals to meet the needs of this population.

The Adults and Elders Program collaborates closely with numerous community offices and organizations including The Arc of Washington, the Washington State Developmental Disabilities Council, and Disability Rights Washington.
