Pal is a nonprofit dedicated to making places more accessible and inclusive for guests living with developmental disabilities.
Just like a ramp helps someone who moves differently, Pal helps those guests who think differently.
For individuals with developmental disabilities, like autism, going out can be overwhelming. In fact, 70% of families impacted by autism say they feel socially isolated. This negatively affects their lives, your business, and our community.
Pal Experiences changes this by creating custom digital tools based on behavioral science, that support families when visiting your place, reducing isolation, promoting you as an inclusive destination, and making a strong community where everyone gets to go.
“Phoenix Mercury games are a blast and really are for everyone in the Valley. Pal’s video and guide not only help us get that message out, but they also offer valuable preparation opportunities and visual support to make our games even more accessible for fans of all abilities.”
Rodney Scearce, Community Relations Manager with the Phoenix Mercury and Phoenix Suns

“Inclusion and accessibility are core values to the Fresno Chaffee Zoo because we strive to be a zoo for everyone. This partnership is so exciting because it allows us to offer tangible tools to families and kids in our community to enjoy the Zoo and further our mission to educate people about the natural world,” said Dean Watanabe, Chief Conservation Education Officer.
