Leadership from Seattle Children’s Autism Center and the University of Washington’s Adult Transition Clinic help choose instructors and classes, and oversee efforts at the Burnett Adult Life Center.


Support Staff

  • Manuel Arambul, behavior consultant
  • Mike Willen, program coordinator
  • Laura Economides, administrative assistant


Instructors for classes vary depending on class topic.

To teach classes, we pair instructors who are experts in class topics with a variety of staff from the Burnett Adult Life Center. These specialists are trained to work with people who have developmental disabilities. The number of participants per instructor depends on the class topic.

If you are interested in becoming an instructor, call the center at 425-488-6173 or email.
