Sensory-friendly performances aim to provide a positive viewing experience for children with autism or other sensory-related disabilities and their families. While the video will be shown as produced, special accommodations will account for potential sensory challenges such as jarring sounds or lights. A quiet area will be available during the show for anyone who needs to take a break. Specially trained volunteers will be present to support attendees and families.
Those without sensory-sensitive needs are encouraged to attend the free screenings offered during Family Day on Saturday, November 11.
Resources and FAQs are provided by Autism Theatre Project to help you decide if this is the right show for you and your family to attend. Children must attend the sensory-friendly performance with a parent or responsible adult. After the show, families will be invited to complete a brief survey to help improve our understanding of sensory-friendly theater.
