It is often challenging for people with disabilities or those on the autism spectrum to find accessible attraction when traveling, writes Jill Horner for the Comcast Newsmakers.
This is why Montgomery County is working hard on ensuring to have as many inclusive attractions as possible.
“We are really fortunate here in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, to have attractions that are on the cutting edge when it comes to accessibility,” said Edward Harris, Chief Marketing Officer for the Valley Forge Tourism and Convention Board.
Among them is Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown which is a certified autism center. Also, King of Prussia Mall has put in various ADA approved ramps and elevators and has wheelchairs available for those who may need them while there.
To help people find the accessible options more easily, all ADA compliant sites have been listed on the AccessMontco.com website. The site itself is ADA compliant and offers several options to adjust the settings for the visually impaired.
“We want to make sure we are on the forefront with our attractions,” said Harris, “to make sure we are accommodating no matter what your limitations are when traveling.”
