Last month, ScenicView Academy participated in Salt Lake City’s FanX conference by hosting a quiet room, a place where convention attendees could relax and recharge. The partnership with FanX not only allows for ScenicView to provide an important service for FanX attendees, it also furthers the non-profit’s mission to increase awareness about the unique needs of adults with autism.
“ScenicView Academy is great at what we do, empowering adults with Autism to 'Live, Work, and Thrive' in the community,” says Alex Johnson, Admissions and Business Development Director, “We are always looking for opportunities to allow others to learn about us, and were thrilled with the opportunity to attach our name to something as significant as the FanX convention.”
Featuring low light, noise cancelling machines, plush seating, an art table, massagers, and sensory toys, the quiet room was put to good use by several hundred grateful attendees. One appreciative fan commented “I was feeling overwhelmed and thought I’d have to go home until I found your quiet room. Thank you!”.
ScenicView Academy, founded in 2001 in Provo, UT, is a nationally recognized nonprofit school for young adults with autism spectrum disorders, neurodiversities or learning disabilities. Through our residential programming, we empower our students to reach their potential and gain skills to live independently. Scholarships are available based on financial need. SVA is accredited by National Commission for the Accreditation of Special Education Services (NCASES).
