Event description
A Workshop for Cultural Institutions Welcoming People with Autism

About this Event

Learn best practices for welcoming and engaging the autism community at your institution. Autism expert, Dr. Sally Burton-Hoyle (Eastern Michigan University), will give attendees a working knowledge of autism spectrum disorder along with accessibility and communication tips. Ashley Grady (Access Smithsonian, Smithsonian Institution) will be joining us virtually to talk about sensory-friendly programming, such as “Morning at the Museum,” and other autism initiatives at the various Smithsonian museums. A round of “lightning presentations” on autism initiatives at cultural institutions around Michigan will be shared in the second half of the workshop.

The Michigan Alliance for Cultural Accessibility is a consortium of professionals working together in order to enhance the accessibility of Michigan's cultural institutions for people of all abilities.
