Sensory-Friendly Saturday is an event designed for guests on the autism spectrum and with other sensory processing disorders. For this event, a variety of accommodations, activities and more have been put into place to create an inclusive, welcoming and safe space for our guests. Prior to this event, staff members of The Henry Ford received training in how to recognize and communicate with someone with autism.
Please note that the Dearborn Truck Plant will be operating on this day. Loud sounds and some smells from manufactured materials may be present. The goal of Sensory-Friendly Saturday is to put accommodations in place for guests with sensory sensitivities, not to change the experience of the Ford Rouge Factory Tour. Also, please note that there are no eating establishments at the Ford Rouge Factory Tour, though you are welcome to bring snacks to eat at lunch tables.
