The Autism Nature Trail
The Autism Nature Trail employs nature to create a cutting-edge experience for the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Community. Connecting to the natural world, The ANT encourages visitors to experience nature in a way uniquely suited to ASD individuals, as well as those with sensory processing disorders and intellectual disabilities. The ANT welcomes everyone, young and old, to experience the inspiring, engaging and calming qualities of the natural world. An original, model approach in engaging the ASD community, the ANT will feature a series of stations designed by a nature play specialist and landscape architects, in consultation with academics, practitioners and family members.
