CHARLOTTE – One of the reasons I became a Sandals and Beaches Resort specialist is what I learned about a very special program they have been participating in for several years now. I have a family that has a child who registers on the Autism scale, and it has been a life-changing event to learn what is being done to make this world just a little better place for special needs people to live in. Besides all the good works Sandals Foundation does every year for poor children and families in the Caribbean, this program shines way above for a large corporation to maintain the expenses related to all they do at these resorts to help our families enjoy quality time with special needs children. Here is a description from Sandals Media and James Shillinghaw
Home to the Caribbean’s first advanced autism-friendly kids camps, and as the first all-inclusive resort company in the world to complete the rigorous International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES) and Autism Certification, Beaches Resorts has expanded its autism program with the release of all-new Sensory Guides.
Developed by the IBCCES and designed to allow caregivers and guests with cognitive disabilities to navigate the on-resort experience based on specific sensory sensitivities more comfortably, the Sensory Guides comprise extensive resort maps with public areas—such as the resorts’ many pools, dining spaces and sports hubs—rated on a 1-10 scale of sensory stimulation
