Sensory Storytimes Offer Welcoming Space for Children with Developmental Disabilities

by on April 24th, 2013

Specifically designed for children with autism spectrum disorders, sensory integration issues, or other developmental disabilities, Sensory Storytimes is a warm, welcoming event that meets the first Saturday of the month in the Storytime Room at 1:30 p.m.

Nancy&kidsActivities include tactile books, songs, stories, and activities that will provide the opportunity for hands-on participation.  Friends and siblings are encouraged to come along. A caretaker must accompany each child with special needs.

Each storytime lasts for 25-30 minutes, with extra time at the end of each program for caretakers and children to socialize.

The next Sensory Storytime will be Saturday, May 4, at 1:30 p.m. Summer dates are June 1, July 6, and August 3.
