Izzi Ferdico is the cofounder of Sensory Access. Neurodiverse herself, she noticed that many individuals with sensory processing differences, including her brother, were unable to enjoy events with their community, such as live concerts, theater and other community events. Izzi came up with the idea to find ways to make such events accessible to those with sensory differences – not just to create separate sensory friendly events, but to make ALL events more accessible for all.
Izzi looks forward to going to college next year and working in diversity and interactive media such as events and games.
Dr Ferdico is a neuropsychologist and co-founder of Sensory Access. Having struggled with Misophonia, she knows firsthand how sensory differences can make it difficult to attend and enjoy an event. She is so excited to work with her daughter who cofounded Sensory Access, and to help create Sensory Accessibility all over the world.
