MGM Works to Make Vegas Venues Autism-Inclusive




With April marking Autism Awareness Month, MGM Resorts reports that it has launched a new partnership to make its Las Vegas venues autism inclusive. 

MGM has partnered with KultureCity, a nonprofit working toward accessibility, acceptance and inclusion, to certify T-Mobile Arena, Park Theater, Mandalay Bay Events Center and the MGM Grand Garden Arena as sensory inclusive destinations. Each venue will offer sensory kits containing noise canceling headphones, fidget tools, verbal cue cards and weighted lap pads.

The kits are available now at T-Mobile Arena, with plans to roll them out to other venues soon. 

As part of the certification process, MGM Resorts employees also went through a comprehensive training with KultureCity to learn about how to best serve guests who have autism, post-traumatic stress disorder or other similar conditions.

Even small changes can go a long way to making a sporting event, concert, or other live performance more comfortable for a person with autism or PTSD, said Dr. Julian Maha, founder of KultureCity, in a written release.
