The Sesame Place theme park in Pennsylvania has been designated a certified autism center, with staff trained in autism sensitivity and awareness by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards.

The credentialing board is an industry leader in autism training for professionals and educators. Sesame Place is the first theme park to receive the board’s certification.

Sesame Place added information to its website for parents like a sensory guide that explains how each attraction might impact a child with sensory processing issues.
