On Sunday, April 15, the George Ranch Historical Park will open its doors for its first annual Sensory-Friendly Day! This exclusive event is open for families with children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and other sensory and developmental challenges to explore the Park in a safe, structured and enjoyable manner. This full-day event will include the following modifications to ensure a customized and welcoming visit:
Quiet Corners have been established throughout the Park and are available on all four of the main historic sites. A special map is available which features these locations and gives helpful advice on how to navigate the Park.
These sensory-friendly kits include a variety of objects to help enhance the quiet spot when needed. Our kits include weighted lap pads, lavender lotion, stress balls and fidget spinners, crayons, coloring books and picture books.
Noise-Cancelling Headphones & Colored Glasses
Noise-cancelling headphones and colored glasses are available for check out from the front desk at the Visitor Center throughout the day.
Sensory-Friendly Map & Guide to the Sites
This GRHP Sensory Friendly Guide shows the locations of the Quiet Corners, which can be used as needed.
The following GRHP Sensory Friendly Guides were created in coordination with The Arc of Fort Bend County to help our guests prepare for their visit to our facility.
