The Adaptive Experience Event {2015}

Engage your senses! This FREE event hosted at the Provo Recreation Center includes exclusive activities for your entertainment. On Friday, February 27, from 6-10pm, we are hosting the second annual Adaptive Experience to spread awareness about programs and services in the community for individuals with disabilities.

This event offers something unique to anyone, regardless of age or ability. The community side of the Recreation Center will include a wide variety of family-friendly experiences (including kids’ yoga and tumbling tot demonstrations) and a room sponsored by Taste, where you can indulge in fine chocolates and learn to sense their origin. Art projects, face painting, and sensory activities will also be highlights. 

Come try out wheelchair basketball (ages 10+), goal ball (a game for the visually impaired, ages 8+), and adaptive yoga and Tai Chi demonstrations. If your child does not meet the age minimum, simply drop them off in child watch while you give these activities a try.

At 8:30pm we will have a motivational speaker, Adam Lindsay, coach of the Jr Wheelchair Basketball team Utah Rush, to tell you the journey following his son's paralysis in an accident.   The final activity for the night will be an exposition game featuring Utah Rush playing against our first ever Provo Parks and Recreation wheelchair basketball team! Come see what a competitive wheelchair basketball game looks like and support your first local team.

Interactive vendor booths include: Ability 1st, Costco, National Ability Center, Mountainland, New Leash on Life-Puppy Raising Club for guide dogs, Spectrum Academy, Therapy Animals of Utah, Utah Parent Center, and many more!

You don’t need a disability to participate in any of these activities. We welcome everyone to come engage your senses. Make sure to come early and sign-up for the many activities. 

RSVP here.


  1. This looks like a really fun family event. I love it when communities host events that allow children to get together and have fun while creating awareness for an important cause.

  2. This actually sounds like it'd be a pretty interesting event to attend. It's neat that it basically helps people understand those with disabilities a little better and provides a fun environment for everyone. I'm sure that my family could enjoy giving it a try either this year or next year. It really comes down to when we're all available.
