There are 4 comments on Agganis Arena’s New Sensory Room Debuts

  1. Such a great amenity for many. I am thinking especially of those children that come to Disney on Ice and Sesame Street, or any game that you host at Agganis. Thank you for providing such wonderful hospitality.

  2. As an autistic grad student here at BU, it is so nice to know that there is a space like this at the Arena. Also, having the social narrative guide is an impressive inclusion! I hope BU extends these efforts across campus to make more areas friendly to those with sensory issues. Being a crowded city campus, I would hope BU soon recognizes the need for quiet, sensory-friendly spots for those who find being in BU buildings/spaces to be overwhelming.

  3. The social narrative guide is a great form of “priming” which is among the research-based practices and evidence-based practices for individuals with sensory challenges. Well done!
