As part of April’s National Autism Awareness Month, the Oakland A’s will unveil a new Sensory Room at the Oakland Coliseum on Tuesday, April 16 during the game versus the Houston Astros.
The quiet space at East Plaza Level Suite 80 in centerfield will cater to fans of all ages with autism, Down syndrome, post-traumatic stress disorder, dementia, and similar conditions who can find comfort from a soothing atmosphere. The space will include “sensory bags,” filled with noise-canceling headphones, fidget toys, and other tools as calming mechanisms. The Sensory Room is available for every game for all fans.
