Level Playing Field – Sensory Room launched at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light

Sensory Room Lauched

Sunderland AFC have become the first Barclays Premier League club to build a designated sensory room for supporters who are affected by the noise levels of the stadium seating areas.” The idea was created after Peter Shippey, Nathan’s father, purchased two season cards in the Black Cats Bar. His son Nathan has an Autism Spectrum Disorder, and after taking his seats for his first game the youngster struggled to deal with the crowd noise” more

Nathan’s mum said for her football crazy son but on the autistic spectrum – it has made a World of difference to his life. They are in talks with three other Football Clubs including Manchester United.

It would be tremendous if this idea could be taken up at all big events – not just Football and not just UK – there are many people this would make a difference to.

  1. What a great idea! I’ve worked with several autistic individuals who would benefit greatly from more adaptations like this.
