What is Sensitive Santa?

Our Sensory Inspired Santa Experience for Kids with Autism and Special Needs provides a supportive environment which eliminates bright lights and loud noises that can trigger sensory sensitivities for someone on the spectrum. Each child taking their picture with Santa receives one on one time with the holiday icon in a private area that is modestly decorated. Parents have expectations about different key events in their lives that they want to share with their children. Just because a child is on the autism spectrum doesn’t mean they should be denied this experience. We are hoping to make this a unique and memorable experience for the entire family.

Interested in becoming a sponsor, a vendor, a volunteer, or Santa?
