Your business or organization is committed to accessibility and inclusion. You know that being inclusive is critical to retaining customers.  But, sometimes, finding the right tools and training is hard: 

  • No one on your team has the qualifications to address accessibility and inclusion.
  • You don’t have the connections or bandwidth to hire a consulting firm.

  • You want cost-effective ways to be accessible, in a way that’s sustainable so it ‘sticks’.

It is really important that we make the space accessible.

“Making changes to the building is important to everyone, even people who don’t experience sensory overload, because we want to provide an accessible space…”

– Abi Reinhart, Accessibility Leader, Social Enterprise Hub

Alison Says: I moved this ahead of Christina because it’s more ‘business’ than a singer/musician. At least as the first quote. Can something new be written for this? No one know what the ‘Social Enterprise Hub’ is, and all this text just says is “accessibility is important”. What did Abi’s team do? Why are they advocating this? How can other business owners see themselves in Abi’s content?

Being sensory-friendly is part of accessibility and inclusion.

You are likely surprised to learn that 33% of the population is more likely to experience sensory sensitivity or sensory overload.

Children, adults, and seniors alike find events and locations too busy, too noisy, and too bright.

Moreover, sensory-friendly events, locations and experiences are in demand by people with anxiety, autism, concussion, hearing loss, neurodiversity, PTSD, sensory processing disorder and many more disabilities.

Are you ready to attract 33% of the population with help from Sensory Friendly Solutions?

The World's 1st Sensory Friendly Certified Performer.

“I am being trained by Sensory Friendly Solutions to become the world’s first Sensory Friendly Performer because accessibility and inclusion for my audience are important to me.”

– Christina Martin, Singer Songwriter

Alison Agrees that interview should be reviewed to pull something more compelling. Are there any photos from a performance that shows it being more sensory friendly?

Or, what about writing something new she approves? She mentioned in meeting about benefits such as new attendees and them becoming fans.

Then the headline can be redone as well, that supports this is the step other businesses should take.

Addressing sensory issues is part of being accessible and inclusive.

Accessibility and inclusion are more than offering wheelchair ramps or sign-language interpretation. Many different disorders, disabilities or differences can contribute to people experiencing the barriers of  sensory sensitivity or sensory overload. Consider the contributing factors listed below and you can quickly see why becoming sensory-friendly is important.
