Sensory Friendly Saturday

On the second Saturday of every month, Miami Children’s Museum offers a sensory friendly experience for children with disabilities and their families. This month we’re getting silly with some spaghetti sensory activities and a special virtual performance from our Theatre Troupe! Our goal is to provide your child with the opportunity to engage in social interactions and improve their processing and regulation of sensory input to optimize their understanding of and participation in natural environments. Visit Museum at Home or our social media channels (YouTubeInstagramFacebookTwitter) for a day filled with sensory activities!
