In May of 2018, Elmwood Park Zoo became the first zoo to earn a certification as a Certified Autism Center. The designation, given by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES), is awarded to organizations that have completed a training and review process with the goal to better serve individuals with autism and other sensory needs.
