The Book Worm Bookstore is the FIRST business in Georgia. and third bookstore in the country to receive the Better Community Sensory Inclusive Certification!
We are also the first to collaborate with Autism Career Pathways for an autistic-led virtual book club!!
What does this certification mean exactly?
The Book Worm Bookstore worked with team leader Maisie Soetantyo from Autism Career Pathways to update our bookstore to be the most accommodating we can be to those who are autistic and/or have a sensory processing disorder.
We made as many updates as we could make in our space, and put our resources and newly learned information into play.
Some of the updates we’ve made throughout our certification process:
*Free ear plugs are available at the register.
*Posted our internet and password at the register and bar top counter for our AAC using customers.
*A dry erase board and marker is out at all times for our nonspeaking or hard of hearing guests.
*A communication letter board is available.
*Sensory chairs available for children 11 and under.
Contact us before your next visit if you have a disability and need any accommodations made that we might not have already in place.
We have included a walk through video below to help you plan for your visit to The Book Worm.
