More About Sensory Friendly Day

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 distracting motions or extra sounds throughout the facility. We have 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 guest for the day. Even with these accommodations, all visitors can still access the Connecticut Science Center’s exciting exhibits and attractions. Additionally, 1:1 aides are always included along with a paid General Admission.
