A Certified Sensory Accessible event is one that meets rigurous standards about creating accessibility accommodations such as social narratives, sensory ratings, availability of sensory tools and a way for guests or patrons to get away from sensory overwhelm
A sensory accessible Venue has been audited by Sensory Certified Team, and meets standards that make the venue accessible to patrons with sensory processing differences, such as a social narrative, sensory ratings, availability of sensory tools and a way for guests or patrons to get away from sensory overwhelm.
A Certified Sensory Friendly Event is an event that has been audited and designed with the help of a Sensory Team (Individuals that have sensory processing differences); changes are made in the production volume and lighting levels, accommodations are made for patrons/guests, and areas are set-up for sensory breaks.
CSF Venues are designed with universal and sensory friendly design, from lighting, acoustics, colors and textures.
CSA Attractions are tourist attractions, theme park rides and other elements of larger venues that have been audited and rated by a Sensory Team, and where sensory tools are available.
The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Lanyard is an international initiative that allows those with hidden disabilities to self-identify when they wish as needing more support or time in certain venues, such as events, airports and more. Sensory Access provides certification by training staff about the lanyard, the types of patrons that may utilize the lanyard, and how to support such patrons.
