Presented in partnership with the Autism Society of Greater Akron, Sensory-Friendly Storytime engages participants through the use of story, music and movement. Programs offer educational, literacy and social opportunities for children of all ages with differing abilities, their siblings, parents/caregivers and their typically developing peers. Each program includes:
- a safe and non-judgmental environment
- a schedule board for following along
- flannel board stories
- interactive book-based experiences
- gentle music
- a half-hour of playtime and socialization for the entire family
