Symbol Access in the Community

This was shared with me recently. The Philadelphia Zoo has improved accessibility for children.  KidZooU: Hamilton Family Children’s Zoo & Education Center has integrated the ideals of universal design in a wonderfully creative manner.  There are social stories available, picture schedules and quiet spaces. This is certainly a model to look at when improving access in other public and private places.  Here is some additional information on the changes: ABC News.  As parks, museums, zoos etc. are updated, consideration should always be made for these improvements. There really is no reason not to improve accessibility for all. Everyone benefits.
