Santa is for everyone. But for children and families with special needs, seeing Santa can bring on stress, anxiety and even panic. For those on the autism spectrum and those with related sensory sensitivities, a Santa visit can mean crowded spaces, long lines and a swirl of competing noise that can create an overstimulating and upsetting environment.
This sensory-friendly experience that welcomes guests with all types of special needs to enjoy a magical morning with Santa before regular center activities begin. There will be a heathy snack station, sensory bins and other activities.
The event is free to attend and photographs are available for purchase. Families are encouraged to RSVP in advance by reserving a ticket.
