Fresno Chaffee Zoo becomes more accommodating for visitors with autism

Local News

The Fresno Chaffee Zoo is working to become more accommodating for visitors with autism.

People with autism have sensory issues and other special needs. The Chaffee Zoo is already the first zoo to become a certified “Pal Place,” with quiet zones and video to show guests what they can expect during a visit.

Starting Monday, kids with autism will be given a sticker to identify them to staff who will provide tips for their visit.

The zoo says it wants to be an inclusive place for all families.
