DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) -- The Henry Ford museum is joining forces with the Autism Alliance of Michigan to provide a welcoming environment to families with autism.

As part of the partnership, the Dearborn museum plans to include a link to pre-visit information on its website that describes environments and sensorial experiences to the families, provides varied dietary options, areas for noise reduction and other hospitality services. And the Autism Alliance will provide training in basic aspects of autism for Henry Ford staff members.

Autism Alliance of Michigan President and CEO Colleen Allen says she's "proud to be partnering with The Henry Ford to give families living with autism the same experiences as those enjoyed by others."
