Sensory Sailors: Autism-friendly sensory sessions at SA Maritime Museum

The team at the SA Maritime Museum has been working with Autism SA to provide a calm and accessible environment within the museum for people with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

These special sensory sessions offer an opportunity to visit the SA Maritime Museum, transformed into a quiet sensory space, with volume turned down or off, lights dimmed in some areas, and a downloadable Social Narrative developed to help prepare for a visit.
