Areas of Focus
Our overall arching goal to continue developing sustainable self-reliance and improved quality of life is achieved through 5 areas of focus
Building Healthy Relationships
We expect that you may not need support in all areas. When that is the case those areas are not a focus when developing your goals. If a few of these sound familiar you are potentially a good match for our model.
About Park City/Heber City
Tucked in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, Park City, along with its neighbor Heber City, offers just about every imaginable type of outdoor recreation that the heart could possibly desire including world-class skiing, hiking, biking, rock climbing, kayaking, fishing, and horseback riding. Along with all the benefits of beautiful small town living, this location also allows easy access to the conveniences and opportunities that can only be provided by a major metropolis.
New Perspectives strives to build an environment that empowers and supports young adults with diverse learning needs to earn a college degree. Our New Perspective young adults have numerous educational opportunities available to them in the surrounding areas. Nearby colleges include Utah Valley University (UVU) Wasatch Campus (located between Park City and Heber City), UVU Orem, BEAU (Broadview University), as well as the University of Utah, Salt Lake Community College and LDS Business College.
While learning at local colleges, living in a supported and integrated environment, enjoying outdoor pursuits, we believe young adults coming from our Clinical Informed Life Coaching Model will be better prepared and more successful in today’s world.
While our team is always available and accessible for students, we do not provide around the clock supervision. If your young adult needs to be ‘supervised,’ then they are not yet ready for our program.
We are a team of specialists who are passionate about providing life coaching support to young adults with learning differences in ways that value their individuality, strengths, interests, and dreams. Most of our students seek support for one or more of the following:
Managing stress and anxiety
Rigid thinking that interferes with starting or completing tasks
Organization and executive functioning
Building and maintaining relationships
Academic and vocational advancement
Developing healthy life skills from financial management to positive recreation
