What is a sensory-friendly movie showing?
A sensory-friendly movie showing is a movie where special accommodations are made to allow children and families with sensory disorders, autism or any other special needs to enjoy a trip to the "movies" without the negative stimuli they might experience at a typical theater showing. (Swank)
Identifying developmental delays and disabilities is important.
1 in 6 children aged 3–17 years have developmental disabilities— conditions that affect how children play, learn, speak, act, or move.
Many children with a developmental disability are not identified until after starting school.
Early intervention (before school age) can have a significant impact on a child’s ability to learn new skills as well as reduce the need for costly interventions over time. (CDC)
