Sponsored by Dayton Children’s Hospital, with support provided by Southpaw Enterprises, Sensory Sundays at the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery offer a new alternative to families concerned with sensory processing disorders. These partnerships assist the Museum in providing families with an opportunity for their children to more readily engage in social interactions.
During these special Sunday morning hours, the Museum will offer programs to appeal to families with children who could benefit from a less stimulating atmosphere.
To reach this goal, the Museum has been analyzed by doctors that specialize in pediatric spectrum disorders to ensure children with special sensory needs receive the best possible experience while visiting the museum.
This specialized environment allows families to enjoy a fun day out, meet with other ASD families, and get hands-on with science in an environment free of judging and unsafe spaces.
When: Sunday, July 15, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Why: Doctors recommend these specialized environments to allow families the opportunity to enjoy a fun day out, meet with other ASD families, and get hands-on with science in an environment free of judging and unsafe spaces.
Who Should Attend: Families with a member on the autism spectrum.
Where: Boonshoft Museum of Discovery, 6200 DeWeese Parkway, Dayton, Ohio 45414
Program Fee: Admission for members is free, but advanced tickets are $8 per person; tickets at the door will be $9 per person. Day-of admission for this program will be through the Education Lobby, located to the right of the main Museum entrance.
The next and final Sensory Sunday at the Boonshoft Museum will be on Sunday, October 21 | 9:00 a.m. – Noon!
