Our Mission

Twenty-One Senses is a nonprofit organized dedicated to empowering parents and caregivers of children with sensory processing disabilities—including autism, ADHD, PTSD, and related disorders—regardless of their location, cultural identification, or socioeconomic status. Our programs equip families to more fully participate in the cultural, commercial, and academic life of their communities by:

  • Increasing awareness and improving sensory accommodations via partnerships with local businesses and community leaders;
  • Enabling caregivers to quickly and easily locate sensory-friendly businesses, community spaces, and enrichment activities via user-friendly online tools; and
  • Nurturing healthy child development by providing parents and other caregivers with personalized, strengths-based coaching and curated digital resources.

Twenty-One Senses was founded and is staffed almost entirely by experienced education industry professionals who either have disabilities themselves or are caregivers of children with disabilities and sensory sensitivities. As a team, we are united by the vision that the world will see our children the way we see them: as loving, vibrant, and valuable members of our families and communities.
