Celebrating the Akron Zoo our newest sensory inclusive location

 

become sensory inclusive

Sensory Initiative

The sensory friendly initiative also known as the sensory movement allows individuals with autism and other sensory needs the ability to see and experience all the things the world has to offer

Why sensory inclusive vs sensory friendly?

Sensory friendly limits accessibility to a specific time or location.
It is harder to execute as staff have limited experience, and support tools are brought in only for the event and then removed.

Sensory Inclusive

ensures daily accessibility not limited by time and location thus creating an accepting and inclusive community.

It is also easy to execute with staff training, and simple yet impactful modifications made to the location.The location will then always be Sensory Inclusive.

You can make this world a better place for All children
