Turkey Hill Experience Now Designated a Certified Autism Center

Popular Lancaster County attraction receives Certified Autism Center status

LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa. (April 26, 2019) — The Turkey Hill Experience, the Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, visitor destination of Turkey Hill Dairy, has completed the process of becoming a Certified Autism Center (CAC) to ensure that guests and families with children who have autism and sensory disorders have the best possible experience. The Turkey Hill Experience is one of only 24 locations in the United States - and the first in Lancaster County - to receive the CAC designation.

The designation was awarded by the International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCE), the industry leader in autism training for health care, education and corporate professionals around the globe. In recent years, the popularity of "autism-friendly" options has grown; however, parents and families are now seeking out organizations that have completed additional research-based training or certification to guarantee that their needs can be met.

"Turkey Hill is committed to providing the ultimate experience to all visitors," said Turkey Hill Experience General Manager Bob Adams. "We work hard to ensure that our guests enjoy their time with us. That includes having a trained staff and a fully equipped facility to serve all individuals. Obtaining our CAC is something we are very excited and proud to be part of."

Since its 2011 launch, the year-round Turkey Hill Experience in Columbia, Pennsylvania, has offered fun-filled, educational and tasty experiences for visitors of all ages. Interactive exhibits allow visitors to learn about dairy culture, the story of Turkey Hill Dairy and how the company's ice cream and iced tea flavors are selected and created. Visitors to the attraction can also create and enjoy their own ice cream flavor in the Taste Lab. Exhibits featuring the history and culture of western Lancaster County and the Susquehanna River Valley serve to highlight the natural beauty and wonderful stories that shaped the area surrounding Turkey Hill, and a gift shop features Turkey Hill products.
