Why is Beautiful Gate Center™ needed?


4,000 children with Intellectual Disability are wait listed in South Carolina for services under the ID/RD waiver.


Children with cognitive delays respond favorably, leading to long-term quality of life, if they can access intervention programs and therapies early in life.


Intellectual disability and Autism Spectrum Disorder are life-long developmental disabilities that significantly impact social and communication skills and adaptive behavior.


A 2005 study indicates only 3% of adults with severe intellectual disability (ID) have a good outcome (53% poor, 43% fair) in terms of independent functioning, residential placement, employment and quality of life.


A 2006 study of the impact of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) on speech production shows 89% of participants (40% with ID, 31% with autism) experienced gains in speech production.


Hours of driving to appointments, continual in-home therapy sessions, and having to coordinate 4-5 different therapists negatively impacts the quality of life for the entire family of a child with developmental disabilities.
