As a specialist in the world of people with disabilities, I see the need for more organizations like The Leonardo who will go out of their way to make services available to everybody, regardless of their ability. Sensory-Friendly Monday highlights The Leonardo’s passion for inspiring creativity and innovation – not only in the arts and sciences, but also in cultivating an environment of inclusion.

It is a great opportunity for our community to have an option to partake in an event that is specific to their needs.  There are not many choices for children with sensory needs… Any time we partner with you, your employees are friendly and helpful, ready to help in any way they can.  My employees had fun interacting with the families and seeing the engagement of the children with the various sensory activities.  Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of a great and needed event in the Salt Lake Valley.
