The Dallas Zoo Welcomes Children with Autism

We at PediaPlex are always looking to team up with organizations locally and nationally who support a sensory-friendly experience for our kiddos with autism and sensory challenges. We are excited to announce The Dallas Zoo as part of that group!


“Modifications around the Zoo will include sound adjustments and quiet zones to create an enjoyable environment for the whole family. In addition families will be provided with social stories and parent tips prior to the event. Special activities will include a sensory activity tour featuring primates, reptiles, and invertebrates with special animal encounters.”
