Scenic View Community Project Survey

Since 2001, ScenicView Academy has supported neurodiverse young adults in transitioning to independent living in the community. Currently, we are exploring the possibility of expanding affordable adult learning, working, socializing, and living opportunities for those with disabilities who may need ongoing, life-long support in order to belong, contribute and progress in the community. If you or your loved one might be interested in accessing more opportunities in a community that welcomes all neurodiversity, including autism and/or intellectual and developmental disabilities, we would love to hear from you.

The University of Alaska Anchorage Center for Human Development is looking for autistic adults who are their own guardians to complete a survey about sexual health education. The purpose of the survey is to understand what education and support autistic adults think are important to have romantic relationships. This information will help us develop training.

If you are an autistic adult and willing to participate, please click the link to complete the survey. Participation is voluntary and we will not know your name.
Please feel free to forward this email to other adults who you know with autism.
If you have questions please contact Curtis Smith: csmith1@alaska.edu

Research Opportunity:

Utah State University is helping the University of Minnesota’s Institute on Community Integration to find people with intellectual or developmental disabilities and/or a traumatic brain injury to take part in a national research study. The goal of the research study is to test measures that include questions about how well Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) are helping people live the life they want.

To take part in this research study you must:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Have a disability and be receiving HCBS services for your disability
  • Provide consent or assent (if not your own legal guardian) to participate in the research study
  • Be willing to participate in a 60-90 minute interview

If you agree to take part in this research study, an interviewer will meet with you online or in person. They will ask you questions about different parts of your life. For example, we will ask you questions about things like:

  • The amount of control you have over the supports you receive
  • Whether you get to do the things you like in the community
  • If you have a job and how well your job fits your needs

Taking part in this research study will involve answering these questions at three separate times over a year period. You will receive a $10 gift card for completing each interview. Each interview will take about 60-90 minutes of your time. The researchers may record your interview.

If you do not wish to take part in this research study, it will not affect your relationship with your organization or the University of Minnesota in any way. This is something you will be doing because you personally want to help the researchers, who are working to develop measures of the quality of life for people with disabilities.

If you would like to take part in this research study, or need further information, please contact Aubrey Snyder at Aubrey.Snyder@usu.edu or (435)797-0528.

This project is overseen by the co-directors of the Research and Training Center on HCBS Outcome Measurement, Dr. Brian Abery (abery001@umn.edu) and Dr. Renáta Tichá (tich0018@umn.edu).
