Legoland New York to become a Certified Autism Center

Legoland New York announced it will become a Certified Autism Center by the time it opens for the season on March 31.

According to a press statement form the Goshen-based attraction, the new certification equips the venue “with the tools and support needed to thoughtfully engage with a neurodiverse population, while giving every child the chance to play their way.” The venue’s front-line team members will be trained to better assist autistic guests or those with other sensory sensitivities, and every ride will have a posted sensory guide indicating whether there are bright lights, loud sounds or any features that guests might need to plan around; pre-planning resources will also be available for guests on the park’s website.

The park will also introduce low sensory areas that will enable guests with certain sensitivities to take a break and relax in a less stimulating environment.

In addition to the Goshen site, all Legoland resorts across North America are set to become Certified Autism Centers by this spring.
