Please be advised the March Au-Some Evening has been canceled due to weather.
Once a month, Au-Some Evenings give children with autism and sensory processing needs, their friends and family an opportunity to play and learn together in an understanding and supportive environment. In addition to a fun night of play with access to the museum space and exhibits, we have special programming for families! The evening features themed Art Studio projects, sensory exploration in our Tinkering Tank, therapy animals from the SPCA and student volunteers from SUNY Buffalo State’s Exceptional Education program. Parent outreach materials including links for social stories, child development resources and play tips are always available. We even provide small giveaways or snacks in the lobby, at the end of the night to help with the transition of leaving the museum. We look forward to having you join us!
Our theme for March Au-Some Evening is Rainbows & Clovers! In addition to sensory activities, we will be experimenting with chromatography rainbows in the Tinkering Tank. Children can make 3-D clovers and rainbow wall hangings in the Art Studio. We will share family resources highlighting Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month and “inclusion.”
