SAN FRANCISCO (CelebrityAccess) – Chase Center, the new 18,064-seat home of the Golden State Warriors, has announced that the arena has become the first sensory inclusive venue in the San Francisco area.
The organization worked with leading sensory inclusion training non-profit, KultureCity, to become Certified Sensory Inclusive.
According to an official release, the certification process included Chase Center staff being trained by leading medical professionals on how to recognize guests with sensory needs and how to create the best experience to handle a sensory overload situation. To help with a guest experiencing a sensory overload situation, Chase Center says it will provide sensory bags equipped with noise canceling headphones, fidget tools, verbal cue cards and weighted lap pads. In addition, there will be a Wellness and Sensory Room designed by medical professionals for guests who may need a quieter and more secure environment. This room will be located on the Main Concourse outside Portal 12.
Prior to attending a Chase Center event, guests can also download the free KultureCity App where one can view what sensory features are available and where they can access them.
KultureCity is a leading non-profit recognized nationwide for using their resources to revolutionize and effect change in the community for those with sensory needs. Since the program’s inception, KultureCity has created over 350 sensory inclusive venues in four countries.
