At this workshop, learn specific techniques for making your organizations and spaces accessible for those on the autism spectrum as well as for individuals with developmental disabilities, sensory processing disorder, post-traumatic stress, even Alzheimer’s and early memory loss. From creating a welcoming and inclusive staff culture, to sharing event production modification tips, to looking at your space through the lens of someone who may be easily overwhelmed, this workshop will teach you easy fundamental concepts that you can implement immediately. Through this interactive workshop and panel discussion, local and national practitioners will share best practices with visitor-based organizations, event producers, presenters, and teaching artists, equipping you with the tools you need to invite these often-excluded populations to your organizations and spaces.
