Exploration for All: Autism Early Open is an ongoing part of the Pacific Science Center’s commitment to accessibility. On the second Saturday of each month be sure to head to the Seattle Center location for a free visit incorporating softened lighting, decreased noise levels and visual stimulation and smaller crowds. The Autism Early Open runs from 8 a.m. – 10 a.m.
The Autism Society of Washington hosts events year-long, and April is by no means an exception. Workshops, webinars and social meet-ups are all on this month’s agenda.
Experts and families share their knowledge on autism at the annual conference at Seattle Pacific University. A resource fair focusing on community programs is also included.
With dimmed lights and reduced noise, join Seattle Children’s Museum for their Sensory Sensitive Hours. The next one is Saturday May 6, from 8:30 a.m. – 10 a.m., a great way to carry the momentum of Autism Awareness Month into May!
Unique movie showings from AMC with the lights up and the sound down. You can get up, dance, walk, shout or sing along. The Sensory Friendly Film is available on the second and fourth Saturday (for family friendly movies) and Tuesday evenings (for more mature audiences) of every month.
