Scenic View Academy
Utah has one of the highest rates of autism in the nation. Nearly 1 of every 54 children born in Utah is on the autism spectrum. The vast majority of autism services and resources are directed toward supporting children, but they will soon grow into adults and struggle to get the support they need to lead successful and independent lives.
ScenicView Academy in Provo helps young adults with autism live, work, and thrive. They receive the personalized support they need to obtain gainful employment, live independently, progress in their academic abilities, and engage in meaningful social relationships. Students are mentored by award winning experts and mental health support is provided by clinically licensed therapists, all on a campus designed for autism.
They adjust the program and the student’s plan to fit their individual needs and provide a scholarship that ensures students have access to affordable tuition. To learn more, please visit svacademy.org.
SelectHealth recognizes the critical role provided by the ScenicView Academy as another example of how Utah Gives Back.
