The ASD Collaborative is a group of professionals, families, and self-advocates in the Waterloo Region who are committed to working together to identify and collectively problem-solve issues in our community as they relate to people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Many people with ASD experience feelings of being overwhelmed due to sensory input such as bright lights, loud sounds, strong scents, etc. The Sensory-Conscious Working Group is a subcommittee of the ASD Collaborative, and we are looking at making our community in Waterloo Region a more accessible place for people who experience issues with sensory input.
A sensory-conscious (or sensory-friendly) environment means that surroundings are intentionally made to be more accessible, for example by offering specific days or times when lights are lowered, music is turned off, etc. We are interested in your opinions and experiences related to sensory-conscious environments in the Waterloo Region. This information will contribute to our efforts within the Sensory Conscious Working Group.
Please follow the link below to participate in our survey. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes of your time. We would appreciate if you could complete the survey before December 15 2017.
