Balancing Act – A Sensory Playdate for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Standing, walking, running and even sitting are all balancing acts! Explore and manipulate balance, weight and movements through fun, sensory-rich activities.

Sensory Playdates aim to bring families together to learn and discover the wonder of science in an environment that supports the unique needs of children with differences.

These free playdates provide opportunities to enjoy family time at the museum in a welcoming, safe and understanding environment, allow parents to network with one another, and help families discover the wonder of science learning together.

Materials will include visual schedule and a social story. Snacks will be provided, but you are welcome to bring a snack to enjoy with your family.
