Especially for Me!
Especially for Me! offers free events for families with children with an autism spectrum disorder, and for families with deaf or hard of hearing children.
New for 2014 are ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) Friendly Afternoons. During ASD Friendly Afternoons, no school groups or birthday parties will be scheduled to avoid overcrowding and support accessibility of exhibits. A dedicated room will also be available to welcome families with a child with an ASD to orient them to the campus and programs, and provide a quiet space for children needing a break from the stimulation of the museums.
Pre-registration is required and is clickable below as registration for each event becomes available.
