In 1996, Scott combined his experience in physical therapy with his love of sports and developed and taught a course in Sports Medicine that was offered in all of Idaho Falls high schools. With the desire to return to working with developmentally disabled individuals, Scott went to work for Options, Inc., a developmental disabilities agency in Idaho Falls in June 1999. After becoming certified by the State of Idaho as a Developmental Specialist, and combined with the fact that several care providers and case workers expressed the need for expanded services in the Rexburg area, Scott established Upper Valley Options, Inc. and opened for business in December 2000.
