Kids With Autism Can Now Browse The Zoo Stress-Free 1 Hour Before it Opens
by McKinley Corbley – Sep 29, 2016

*** begin quote ***

For kids on the autism spectrum just trying to enjoy animals at the zoo, large crowds and noise can be too stressful to maneuver.
That’s why the Taronga Zoo in New South Wales, Australia will now open one hour early on special Access Taronga days so guests with autism can enjoy the park without the general public.

*** end quote ***

How many times do our institutions fail to have the sensitivity to the needs of others.

It’s not just with and for children. We all can be sensitive to the needs of others. Don’t really need to know that the other person has a disability. Just assume that extra care needed with all our interactions.
