Naming Opportunities – Sensory Arts Garden

The Foundation realizes that people with autism spectrum disorder may have sensory processing challenges. Nature offers children and adults with autism wonderful opportunities for adventure, exploration and engagement. When individuals with autism engage with nature, they develop not only a special interest in birds, animals or plants, but also opportunities to develop their social skills.  Become a part of this tranquil place that allows visitors to engage with nature in their own way, on their own terms, and at their own pace.
