Event description:

Families with young children with autism and other sensory integration challenges are invited to explore Museum exhibits for this special night of play.  The museum will be offering a modified environment with reduced sound, designated quiet spaces, and extra visual signage and sensory aids. MHCM is proud to have partnered with the Anderson Center for Autism to become an Autism Supportive Environment.  The museum aims to support families that have young children with autism by providing extra support aids, offering special assistance and periodically offering designating special hours for low-stimulation exploration.  MHCM provides visual and auditory supports (“Social Stories,” flip book exhibit guides, communication cue cards, sunglasses, and noise-cancelling headphones) and have identified special “quiet spaces” within the Museum to support the specific needs of children with autism and other sensory integration challenges.
