Sensory Processing and Autism Resource Kits

Sensory Processing and Autism Resource Kits (SPARK) are available to check out for free and are appropriate for people of all ages with autism or sensory needs to help them feel safe and supported while exploring the York Street gardens. The backpacks were designed and created by the Autism Community Store in partnership with the Autism Society of Colorado.

Each kit includes a garden-themed Seek & Find weighted lap pad, wiggle seat cushion, noise-reducing headphones, visor, fidget keychains, hand-operated fan, turquoise sunglasses, calming strategies card and an outdoor blanket.

Check out SPARK backpacks on a first-come, first-served basis in the Helen Fowler Library in the Freyer – Newman Center or at the Information Desk in Boettcher Lobby. No reservations are accepted. Leaving a driver’s license or photo ID is required.
