Embracing Autism Month: Celebrating Neurodiversity
April 6 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Autism Month is a valuable time to celebrate those who identify as Neurodivergent while providing meaningful experiences for all to come together in celebration. It’s through increased understanding and celebration that we foster a greater synergistic community, regardless of sensory and communication differences.
Art (all day):
Exploration No. 1> Fingerpaint with the different colors of the rainbow and learn about regulation scales!
Exploration No. 2> Squeeze and squish clay into fun shapes and use tools to mold it however you’d like!
Exploration No. 3 (Sensory Table)> Play with blue water and scoopers, along with lots of tubes to connect in fun ways!
Purpose: These activities will allow children to engage in sensory play in a variety of ways. They will develop neuropathways and strengthen their hand muscles by playing with clay. Children will also be able to engage with their peers in a peaceful environment and develop their fine motor skills.
