Access All Day (OH UCEDD/LEND)

August 19, 2019

The LEND Program at the University of Cincinnati UCEDD provides training to Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden staff to help make the zoo more accessible for people with disabilities and their families. The last two years, the zoo has hosted an Access for All Day, where they invite the community to take part in the progress they've made to make the zoo more accessible such as: adult changing tables, sensory friendly restrooms, planning maps, social narratives, visual supports, sensory bags and more.

We participated in the event this year and love being able to raise awareness about who we are and what we do to families who have never heard of us and to encourage families who know a lot about us that progress is being made.
