Overall, Good App

I enjoyed the app overall. It does provide the reassurance that a safe environment is provided along with guidelines to follow. I also appreciated the summary given for the different attractions of the aquarium.

The navigation of the app is excellent and accessible for all ages (for my 7-year-old was able to explore it on her own). I would suggest maybe adding a language feature for those who may read/speak/understand English. Maybe a translator option?

Amazing, thoughtful resource for families

I’m planning to take my kids to Shedd next week and sat down to try to find some info to show my sensory/autism kid in preparation so he knows what to expect. This app does it all for you in one place. Photos and sample sounds they can expect to see and hear, maps to sensory triggers and quiet spots, a visual schedule, games to play while waiting or if they need a break. So much thought and consideration went into this app and it’s a tremendous tool
For families who travel with sensitive kids who usually have to figure out what to expect and hope for the best. Thank you Shedd!

Parts of the app are useful beyond a trip to the Shedd. The ability to watch social stories has made a huge difference in our being able to prepare and enjoy the day. Thank you
