BREAKING NEWS

Sensory Friendly Locations--Input is Needed!

The ASD Collaborative Sensory-Conscious Working Group subcommittee is looking at making our community a more accessible place for people who experience issues with sensory input.


A sensory-conscious (or sensory-friendly) environment means that surroundings are intentionally made to be more accessible, for example by offering specific days or times when lights are lowered, music is turned off, etc.


This Collaborative is interested in your opinions and experiences related to sensory-conscious environments in the Waterloo Region


Please follow the link below to participate in our survey.  The survey should take no more than 10 minutes of your time.
