Sensory-Friendly Hour

Students, faculty, and staff from the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences and Columbian College of Arts and Sciences applied and were selected to serve as volunteers at the White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday, April 1, 2024.

Select volunteers from occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech-language pathology programs attended to support approximately forty thousand guests and the accessibility services to increase participation and improve all guests' experience. The event included its second ever sensory-friendly session and was designed for children thirteen years and younger and their families, and featured an egg roll, egg hunt, egg dyeing, photo opportunities, and more.

Volunteer doctoral students from the occupational therapy program were placed into teams to offer accessibility support for the sensory-friendly session from 7-9 am and collaborated with students across disciplines to offer physical, cognitive, and linguistic support for disabled attendees. Volunteers also greeted attendees, answered questions, and provided information at each of the assigned stations.
