Guests with Special Needs
COSI strives to accommodate the needs of all our guests. Should a specific need require an assisting companion, we will gladly admit the assisting companion to our facility free of charge. We have implemented some resources to help our guests with special needs. Some of these accommodations include:
The Calming Room, located on the first floor near the Guest Services desk, can be used by overstimulated children and individuals who need a brief moment away from the COSI environment. The Calming Room is free for use by families with children on the autism spectrum or with other cognitive conditions. Please inquire at COSI’s Guest Services Desk for details.
The National Geographic Giant Screen Theater utilizes assisted listening devices for those individuals with minimal loss of hearing (check with the Guest Services desk for availability). Scripts can be made available for select live shows, please check with the show performer for availability of show scripts.
