Join us for Sensory Friendly Playtime, a low-sensory event for children with autism spectrum or sensory processing disorders.
For children with autism spectrum or sensory processing disorders, a visit to a museum like WOW! can be difficult or overstimulating. To meet the needs of our community, we launched Sensory Friendly Playtime in 2015. Designed as a low-sensory event, Sensory Friendly Playtime allows children and their families to explore the Museum without the noise, crowds, and stimulation of a typical day. We limit the number of families who can attend, turn down sounds and lights, and provide adaptive equipment. Additionally, we partner with a variety of local therapists and specialists to facilitate activities, provide resources, and answer questions for families.
Admission to Sensory Friendly Playtime is $1 per person thanks to WOW!’s donor-supported Play for All Initiative!
