SENSORY INCLUSIVE EVENTS VENUE
The Overland Park Convention Center has partnered with non-profit KultureCity to become a Sensory Inclusive Certified venue. Sensory sensitivities or challenges with sensory regulation are often experienced by individuals with autism, dementia, PTSD and other similar conditions. The certification process equips venue staff by training with leading medical professionals on how to recognize those attendees with sensory needs and how to handle a sensory overload situation.
One of the major barriers for these individuals is sensitivity to over stimulation and noise, which is an enormous part of the environment in event venues. KultureCity’s Sensory Inclusion Program is designed to ensure the best guest experience for those with sensory needs so that all can attend and feel comfortable.
Bags are equipped with noise canceling headphones, fidget tools, verbal cue cards and weighted lap pads, and are available to all guests who may feel overwhelmed by the environment
Signs including Quiet Area, Headphone Zone, Sensory Bags Available Here and Sensory Inclusive Location are posted throughout the venue
Prior to attending an event, families can download the free KultureCity App where they can view what sensory features are available and where they can access them
