Family Autism Night – June

Monday, June 24 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Our Autism Nights provide an opportunity for children and their families to have some fun in an autism-friendly environment with other families!

Time: 5:00-7:30p.m.

Specifically, for: Families with children of all ages who are on the autism spectrum; Pretend City will be closed to the general public.

Many of our community partners, who specialize in supporting children on the autism spectrum, will be on-hand to enrich your family’s play experience with welcoming smiles and practical support. Watch a video tour of our museum here.

This month’s activities will include:

  • Interactive Story-Time (6:00 p.m.): Learn about water safety with our friends at WaterWorks Aquatics as we explore the ocean blue with Sammy Starfish, Sally Seahorse, and Caleb Crab!
  • Sensitive Music Circle (6:45 p.m.): Join us as we explore with our friends at OC Speech Therapy the different benefits that music and singing can provide your kiddos!  

Grown-up Tip:  When objects have a clearly defined “space” into which they belong or have a predictable function, you may find that children with autism will be more engaged and interested in participating. Example activities are those in which children are required to build something (ex. blocks) or place items in a particular manner (ex. puzzles). Make sure that you give plenty of wait time to allow your child to process, plan and respond. This may ensure that you do not miss communicative attempts.

RSVP: Here! Max: 300 guests

Fee: FREE (Only guests with a reservation and a confirmation number will be admitted!)
