Legoland makes park autism-friendly
WINTER HAVEN, FL - If the day of fun starts does get bumpy, families can always take a little break in one of the quiet rooms. They serve as a sanctuary from all the noise, and come equipped with noise-cancelling headphones, special toys, and blankets designed with autistic children in mind.
"Instead of going all the way back to your hotel room or all the way back to your car to leave the park, you now have a safe, quiet place in the park where you can take a break," continued Brady.
In addition, the park announced in a press release that all new employees will receive specialized training to assist guests with Autism Spectrum Disorder
The changes come just in time for National Autism Awareness Month, and Legoland will donate a percentage of its sales to the group Autism Speaks. According to the CDC, 1 in every 68 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder. Changes like these can go a long way to ensure everyone is smiling.
