Part of the Explore-Abilities Access Program, join us on Saturday, August 12, 2017 for Explore-Abilities Morning – a sensory-friendly museum experience designed for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and sensory processing differences to have fun and enjoy interactive, hands-on learning in a safe and accessible facility!
Developed in conjunction with experts from Autism Learning Centre, Autism Manitoba, and On The Spectrum Therapy Services, this event features:
— Light and sound reductions in museum galleries
— Extra visual signage for safety
— A less crowded environment
— Designated quiet zones apart from the galleries
— Specialized equipment (i.e., sunglasses, ear defenders, and fidget toys) available upon request
— Specially trained staff to complement your museum experience
Note: The Children’s Museum opens to the general public at 9:30AM. Visitors are welcome to stay after this time, however lights, sounds, signage, and other Explore-Abilities elements/accommodations will return to regular operating levels at 9:30AM. Registration is required for this event. Space is limited and available on a first come, first serve basis.
