Sensory-Friendly Summer Activities

This summer, there are many sensory-friendly summer activities for individuals with autism and sensory processing disorders available throughout the community.  Thankfully, many organizations and community groups have developed a greater awareness about the needs of this population, providing families of children with disabilities the same opportunities as everyone else.  We applaud the efforts of local vendors and organizations that are working to meet the needs of everyone, regardless of disability.
