The opening of a sensory room at Boston University’s Agganis Arena on Saturday, however, will make adults and parents of children with sensory processing disorder feel a whole lot more comfortable attending venues throughout Greater Boston, said Brenda Dater, executive director of Watertown-based Asperger/Autism Network.

“It’s truly inclusive instead of saying ‘‘This is a space that’s really not available to you,” Dater said. “If we can do it here, we can do it in a lot of other places, which is great.”

Dater’s organization trained all part- and full-time Agganis staff members on how to recognize and react to guests experiencing sensory overload.
