Our Next Present: A four pack to the Georgia Aquarium. This has been one of our most popular giveaways.
Through Saturday, the Georgia Aquarium is celebrating the diversity of human accomplishments and abilities. During this four day event, Georgia Aquarium will showcase the talent and creativity of special guest performers with various backgrounds and abilities. Did you know that the Georgia Aquarium is completely wheelchair accessible? Even the touch tanks are built to allow wheelchair guests to enjoy the experience. For children with autism, the Aquarium offers a photographic preview. For visually impaired, there are realistic three dimensional representations of animals in each gallery, tactile elements at the education station and an audio exhibit about the belugas.
I don’t have a special needs child, but my mother is in a wheelchair and whenever she is with us, I think how incredibly hard it must have been before places were made wheelchair accessible. I think it’s wonderful that the Georgia Aquarium has made an effort to accommodate all visitors and has come up with ways to make the experience more meaningful for a variety of learning styles.
