Autism Awareness: Sesame Place

(Sesame Place opening April 28, 2018 @ 10am!)

Amazing news for families like mine! The International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards has designated Sesame Place (located in Langhorne, PA) as the first theme park in the (entire) world to be a Certified Autism Center.

Opening its doors on April 28 at 10am, guests will be greeted by team members and staff that have received training in the areas of: sensory awareness, motor skills, social skills, communication, environment, emotional awareness, autism 101 and more. Certainly, this training will be beneficial to the need of ALL children, and especially those with special needs.

In addition to specialized training, sensory guides are available to help families plan activities based on their child’s needs. The park also has low-sensory areas, quiet rooms and provides noise cancelling headphones upon request. They also allow accommodations for guests who need to experience “low sensory parade viewing.”

The mission of the park is simple: to provide all families an enjoyable and memorable visit to Sesame Place by offering specialized services to guests with autism and other special needs.

Bravo, Sesame Place! We’ll find our way to the east coast for a visit, soon.
