Recently, the CDC announced that 1 in 36 children are diagnosed with autism. With knowledge of this growing statistic, we know that an even great rate of children have a sibling or family member they love who has autism; and an even higher rate of families are impacted by autism. As prevalence of autism continues to increase, Visit Ausome Indy is dedicated to creating a growing network of “ausome friendly” places for families to enjoy.
Life with autism is unpredictable. Many children and adults with autism live with sensory processing issues that make sounds, lights, smells, crowds and environments challenging to tolerate or navigate. Communicating discomfort can be difficult or impossible, resulting in meltdowns as a form of communication. As a result, parents, family members and caregivers opt to stay home in order to avoid the unpredictable nature of how autism impacts their loved one.
Quality of life for family members and the child with autism is lessened by the lack of social outings and community engagement that can result.
Visit Ausome Indy proactively reaches these families, and those who plan to travel to Indy, with a network of safe, welcoming and accommodating, “ausome friendly” places for their family to enjoy.
