Different By Design
We Are New Perspectives
A motivational approach based on current research and best practices. Rather than isolating students from real life situations and experiences, we immerse young adults in the local community.
At New Perspectives, we understand that every person is unique. That is why our in-home sessions and therapy options, in general, focus on projects and activities that target and meet the outlined treatment goals for each individual person.
The New Perspectives Model is centered around the relationship between student and members of the NP team. Upon arrival, each student partners with a “New Perspectives Certified Life Coach” and together they work to identify needs, goals and desired outcomes.
Support For Neurodiverse Young Adults Utah
Neurodiversity is an idea that has been around for some time. It believes that conditions like autism or ADHD are simply brain differences and not to be considered abnormalities.
For young adults with learning and thinking differences, belonging to a community that supports neurodiversity has genuine advantages. It can help kids (and their parents) outline their difficulties as differences instead of deficits. It can also reveal insight into teaching methods that highlight the strengths these young adults have and how they can help them become independent and productive members of the community.

What You Need To Know About Neurodiverse Conditions in Young Adults
What Is Neurodiversity
Neurodivergent is a condition where someone's brain functions differently from what society considers normal, affecting how they behave or learn.
But according to the neurodiversity view, the brain differences are typical. And young adults who have this condition are as normal as those who don't have this condition.
What Are The Types Of Neurodiversity
The different types of neurodiversity are:
Dyslexia is a learning disorder that includes trouble reading because of issues distinguishing discourse sounds and figuring out how to identify letters and words. It is also called reading disability. Dyslexia influences spaces of the brain that process reading.
The most widely recognized problem young adults with dyslexia are with reading specifically.
Dyscalculia is a condition that makes understanding mathematical problems and arranging sequences difficult. It is hard to determine if a person has dyscalculia because countless individuals battle counting and other simple mathematics tasks.
Hyperlexia is the incapacity to read at a young age. Hyperlexia is a "splinter" of the mental imbalance range. It can bring about trouble with mingling, a disabled capacity to think and speak.
Treating Young Adults with Autism Like Adults
As young people with autism and other special needs transition into adulthood, it is important for those of us who are their parents, friends, and advocates to continue to provide support and care. It is even more important that we begin to recognize and respect them as adults.
There are many things to consider when supporting and caring for a young adult with special needs. For example, we need to help them make mature and responsible decisions about clothing, hairstyles, and leisure activities. We also need to communicate with them in a more adult manner.
New Perspectives is a highly recognized and effective community based program supporting neurodiverse young adults in their goals of integrating into a life of independence. We incorporate a customized and individual coaching approach through personalized and socialized engagement for each client.
