Our ‘Spotlight On’ series features regional programs and activities in the arts and entertainment that have been designed for those touched by autism.
Houston-area residents (or visitors) – the Children’s Museum of Houston offers semi-annual Sensory Friendly Days for children with autism – allowing them to explore the museum in their own way and in their own time!
These events provide a comfortable and protected environment for children and allow parents to make connections with other families. Doors are closed to the general public, lights are turned down, extra sounds are limited and distracting motions are stopped. Plus, extra signage is added to help visitors determine things not to climb on.
The next Sensory Friendly Day is scheduled for October 14, 2013, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. For more information and/or to register, visit the museum’s website.
