To create a welcoming and inclusive learning environment for anyone with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and sensory processing differences, we have made several accommodations at the Connecticut Science Center on select dates during the year that we call our Sensory Friendly Days. Our dedicated staff will lower the volume, dim the lights, and limit any distracting motions or extra sounds throughout the facility. We have also added extra signage to help visitors identify potential triggers in specific exhibits or galleries. Everyone who could benefit from this sensory-friendly environment is welcome to be our special guests for the day. Even with these accommodations, all visitors will still have access to the Connecticut Science Center’s exciting exhibits and attractions.
Additionally, 1:1 aides are always free.
