A theme park in Philadelphia got the world’s first autism certification. Sesame Place, based on the popular kids’ TV show Sesame Street, has become the first in the world to get the accreditation. The new certification means all their employees have been trained in the “skills, temperament and expertise” required to work with families and children with special needs. The park also has quiet rooms for children and a sensory guide to help parents know how each attraction could affect their child’s sensory processing issues. April is National Autism Awareness Month and the park plans to open for its new season at the end of the month.
