FraserCast E05 - Sensory Sensitivity and Sensory Certification

March 3, 2020

Did you know that we have more than five senses? Or that people can be hypersensitive and hyposensitive? Or that more and more of your local events and venues may have a designated sensory tent or quiet space? Gina Gibson, Fraser Sensory Inclusion Specialist, explains the importance of creating sensory-friendly environments and events to accommodate children and families with sensory needs. She also talks about what businesses and organizations can do to improve their sensory accommodations such as partnering with Fraser Sensory Certification. Join us today to learn about how you, your business, and your community members can create positive experiences for everyone, with or without special needs.

We'd also like to thank our episode sponsor Central Roofing Company, who is also our presenting sponsor for our annual Walk for Autism on April 18, 2020. Thank you for supporting our podcast!
