Theatre can be a magical experience, yet often the surprise pops of sound or flashes can scare children with autism or those with other sensory sensitivities. Sensory Access provides a full rundown of the show with pointers of which moments may not be Sensory-Friendly. Sensory Access Headphones are provided to use at each show.
Want to create a Sensory performance of your show? Sensory Access can provide ideas, staffing and support for the design and implementation of a Sensory-Friendly production.
Quite a few things will help you be able to enjoy a live theater experience! Here's a few of our favorite tips: - bring a quiet fidget - bring noise-reducing headphones - Acquaint yourself with the story - Read through a social narrative of the theater you are attending - go outside during intermission to get away from the crowd - using seat cushions if you can't see well
