Now everyone gets to go... to your place.

"70% of families impacted by autism say they feel socially isolated"1

The American’s with Disability Acts mandates accommodations for guests who move differently, but what about your 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.

“Before our partnership with Pal we had families come in that had a very challenging experiences. They could not complete their journey, due to the sounds, due to the smells. After our partnership with Pal not only do they return, they have annual passes and come in on a weekly basis.” Jake Hustead – OdySea Aquarium Manager Guest Relations
