Custom Education Foundation is transforming Six Flags Great Adventure into a sensory-friendly environment!
Custom Education Foundation, Gersh Academy, and their partners will transform the park into a sensory-friendly environment where individuals on the autism spectrum, their educators, friends, and families can enjoy the day together free of worry.
Most individuals on the autism spectrum struggle with processing sensory information, becoming overloaded by touch, taste, sight and sound. It can make it extremely difficult for families with children on the spectrum to visit places like amusement parks. It is our mission at Custom Ed to remove those obstacles and enable all children to enjoy a day at the park! No amusement park of the magnitude of Six Flags has ever been transformed into a sensory-friendly environment, we are honored to be the first ones to make this happen for our children!
Welcome to a world built just for you. A world where individuals on the autism spectrum are empowered to thrive. Where parents' hopes and dreams are fulfilled and our individualities are celebrated. Join us as we explore this world together.
Designated decompression areas, stocked with sensory friendly items like iPads, will be set up throughout the park.
Custom Ed worked in collaboration with the park to turn down the lights and the music making it friendlier for our event attendees.
Meet your national & local autism community! Learn what support, resources and services are available to you and your family.
Special presentations throughout the day from high-profile professionals in the field of autism.
Highly-trained special education staff will be throughout the park all day to assist families in whatever they may need.
That's right. The entire park is reserved for the event and for you and your families to enjoy!
