Frist Center promotes sensory spaces in Vanderbilt Hustler article
Sensory spaces are a common resource at autism conferences and events, providing a calming spot for attendees to escape stress or overwhelming stimuli. But these spaces can be beneficial to a much wider audience, including those with anxiety, ADHD and other neurodiversity or disabilities.
The Frist Center for Autism & Innovation is hoping to start a campus conversation about the need for sensory-friendly spaces, beginning with this Vanderbilt Hustler article written by Frist Center communications coordinator Claire Barnett.
