The Henry Ford (THF) will expand its current public programming and create new programs that enable guests with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) to better access THF's collections, daily programs, and special events. After realizing the barriers to visiting THF for individuals with ASD/SPD, THF will significantly expand its Sensory Friendly Day programming and increase the frequency of its Sensory Friendly events. To make these visits more welcoming and educational for this audience, THF will also develop and deliver new training for staff members designed to broaden awareness and develop experience delivery/service skills around the unique needs of those with ASD/SPD.
