Resch Center among venues providing sensory safe zones


ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (AP) -- The Resch Center in Ashwaubenon is among venues setting up a `sensory safe zone' where families dealing with autism can take a break from the stimulating sights and sounds of a sporting event or a concert.
PMI Entertainment Group operates the Resch Center and two other facilities owned by Brown County.

The company says the first safe zone will be set up temporarily at the Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena Nov. 28 and 29 for the Sesame Street Live performance.
Press-Gazette Media says other sports venues or franchises have also embraced the concept of working with families dealing with autism.

The National Hockey League's Florida Panthers have offered discounted tickets and a sensory-friendly lounge during a game earlier this year.
