I love writing and hope to introduce people to things that they may not have known about before through my articles.

Sesame Place, a theme park located in Langhorne, Pennsylvania has become officially labeled a “Certified Autism Center”. They have worked with the International Board if Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards and are the first ever to be certified under this title.

This means that 80 percent of the staff at the park will be trained in special areas like communication, motor skills, sensory and emotional awareness to meet the needs of all children. There will be sensory guides available to help parents plan activities based on children’s specific needs and they will have quiet rooms and low sensory areas for kids. The quiet rooms are key for kids with autism when they need a break away from stimulation.

They have a page you can visit that explains in depth everything they offer for families with children with autism. They also have downloadable guides. They offer a Ride Accessibility Program where they have gone through each ride and determined the requirements needed, both mentally and physically to ride each attraction. They will be able to help you decide what ride is doable and which your child may need assistance with.

They also offer Noise-Cancelling Headphones on site which I wish places like Disneyland offered. Considering they have some of the loudest rides and sometimes I have to cover my daughters ears. All of what they are doing is pretty ground breaking in the theme park experience area. If you have a child with Autism you may want to put this on your destination list!
