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.
Here is a list of events and activities throughout Massachusetts that are sensory-friendly fun for the whole family:
Sensory Sensitive Saturday in Boston on July 22 – tours and programs at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute
Sensory-Friendly Movie on July 29 – showing of “The Emoji” in Haverhill
“A Little Princess” Sensory Friendly Performance on July 22 – community theater program in Brockton
