Sensory Friendly Programming is designed to help kids with different abilities participate in programs with the instructor being sensitive to that child’s need(s). Whether that is dimming the lights, turning down the music or providing them with supplies to compensate for any textile sensitivities or sensory overloads. Kids with sensory needs may scream, stim, and constantly move around; but in a sensory friendly program, you are in a judge free environment. Kids without sensory needs can participate in sensory friendly programming and we hope you do – this will give you an opportunity to make new friends!
