The now qualified family destination welcomes people of determination, and families with special needs, offering free access for kids and special rates for caregivers
[ March 2022, Dubai, UAE] – Aventura Parks is officially the first ropes adventure park to become a Certified Autism Center™(CAC) in the Middle East. The CAC designation, granted by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES), requires complete training of staff, certification, and an onsite review by IBCCES for a venue to earn the accreditation. Today, Aventura Parks is qualified to provide guests with sensory guides, pre-travel planning tools, and other resources to ensure each visitor’s adventure is a success. Children of determination get free access to the park with 50% off for all caregivers.
“In line with our mission statement we would like our park to offer equal experiences and inspire everyone. By including children with different learning abilities, we can change attitude and promote respect, encouraging them to learn through play in our natural 35,000 sqm Ghaf tree forest facility,” said Frank Raubenheimer, Aventura Parks Operations Manager.
“We are excited to partner with Aventura Parks and look forward to more organizations in the Middle East taking steps toward inclusion. The need continues to grow for more organizations to be able to welcome autistic individuals and other persons of determination. Our programs are designed to help support the long-term goals of accessibility and inclusion so that all families can have fun and make memories,” said Myron Pincomb, IBCCES Board Chairman.
For more than 20 years, IBCCES has been the leader in cognitive disorder training and certification for healthcare, education, and corporate professionals around the globe. IBCCES is the only credentialing organization providing this type of certification, which includes evidence-based training as well as the perspectives of autistic individuals, alongside other tools, and resources such as onsite reviews and customized recommendations, and renewal requirements to ensure the program is a long-term commitment that has a lasting impact.
