The Autism Nature Trail In New York Is The First Of Its Kind

Finding suitable activities for loved ones with developmental disabilities can be difficult. Many disabilities cause sensory processing issues that can make “normal” situations seem overwhelming. For a child on the autism spectrum, a trip to Disney World could be so over-stimulating as to be miserable. Fortunately, in today’s world, we are becoming better educated about developmental disabilities. There is an increasing number of opportunities for those with disabilities. A trail that recently opened up in Letchworth State Park is the first of its kind in the entire country. It represents a major step towards accepting neurodiversity by helping more people get out and enjoy nature.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

To access the ANT, enter the park from the Castile entrance (6787 County Rd 38, Castile, NY 14427).
