COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) — With back to school season here, Macy’s is hosting a shopping event that caters to children with autism.
Disability access is not “catering” to autistic anyone. Marketing a more access-friendly day is a sad state for Autistics.
Here in America we have the Americans with Disabilities Act – I wonder if there’s a part in there for sensory spaces (noise-pollution control in these big places would be fabulous to start).
Just the echo in some of these places is too much for me to have the ability to shop there. I manage with headphones and short trips, if I go – though i avoid places like indoor malls as much as possible.
I can’t imagine the hell an autistic kid is experiencing with folks who don’t understand sensory integration disabilities.
Can we have inclusiveness everyday?
