making a difference through partnerships to support accomodations to be included in our community

We provide sensory sensitive events for children and families. One challenge with autism is sensory processing that prevents children from being included in community events. We work with community partners to accommodate needs, such as leaving the lights up in a theatre, lowering the sound, eliminating long wait lines, limit crowds, and more.

our community impact

sensory santa

Every November, we invite Santa down from the North Pole to beat the holiday rush. We offer everything traditional Santa photo experiences can't. No crowds, no rush, no lines, no tears, and we don't even need anyone to sit on Santa's lap. We do pictures their way. 


We know about some of the challenges that live theater or even a trip to the movies can present to those on the autism spectrum. We offer sensory friendly theater experiences that the whole family will enjoy. You'll love the way those little faces light up when they get to experience the magic and music of the theater.

summer splash

Summer Splash is another example of the many projects we have implemented. Summer Splash provides a calm, uncrowded and quieter environment to explore a new sensory experience. We provide extra safety measures and experienced volunteers who understand how to encourage, engage and support those with sensory challenges. Families also enjoy the socialization opportunity.

community participation

Inclusion in community activities is a top priority for our program. We offer families the support needed for their child to participate in existing community programs, such as Challenger Sports, Boy Scouts, and much more! 


Technology often is the link for communication and learning for some with autism. We work with families and schools to ensure children have the individualized supports needed. 

spectrum sitters
training course

Finding someone you trust to care for your children while you're away can be especially challenging when you have a child with autism. Spectrum Sitters training equips potential sitters with tools to help sitters be prepared to make the best experience possible for the child, parents and the sitters.  
(Best suited for occasional respite, not daycare or a long-term care option.)
