ABOUT THE EVENT /

The Birmingham Barons invite all families affected by autism to attend the seventh annual Autism Friendly Barons Game on Sunday, May 3rd at Regions Field. The Autism Friendly Barons Game transforms the typically loud sporting event into a sensory friendly experience.

 

May 3rd’s game will include amenities for families affected by autism including: reduced volume and noise, a user’s guide to the game called a “social story”, a map of the field locating “safe zones” where individuals and families can go when in need of a quiet space, and a designated area for mascots where individuals can approach mascots if they desire. The social story gives guests the opportunity to know in advance what the game day will bring. It will include all of the events taking place during the game. The social story is now available on the AFBG’s website and hard copies will be handed out on game day.
