Visit Salt Lake has recently been accredited as a Certified Autism Center™ (CAC) by IBBCES. A CAC is an organization where at least 80% of its staff is highly trained, fully equipped, and certified in the field of autism. Evan Bauerle from Sports Salt Lake stated, “As a parent of a child with Autism, having Visit Salt Lake become a Certified Autism Center was the first step in creating an inclusive environment for locals and incoming visitors with neurodiverse family members. The sad truth is that autistic and sensory-sensitive individuals have limited destinations with accessible spaces and services that can provide a comfortable experience. By deepening our team’s knowledge around sensory challenges, we can better equip ourselves to foster a community where every individual, regardless of their differences, can look forward to visiting our sensory-friendly city.”
