Autism Welcoming Initiative

Creating an autism welcoming community in the MetroWest area.

Autism Welcoming Initiative

Together, Advocates and the Autism Alliance are partnering with businesses and individuals to create a welcoming and accessible community for families and their loved ones with autism. Ultimately, our goal is to lead an increased quality and socially inclusive life for families. We’re making things easier for families by helping businesses become sensitivity responsive.

Our Initiative

Sensitivity Responsiveness for Community Businesses

Sensory responsive businesses take extra steps to create an accepting and inclusive community by educating staff and making simple, but impactful accommodations to their location. We will work with local businesses to educate, train, and provide the tools they need to become an approved sensitivity responsive business. Having neighborhood businesses that care fosters a new culture and stronger environment for all.
