Past Work and Events for Organizations
SENSORY FRIENDLY MOVIE EVENT
Maplewood's first Sensory Friendly Movie Event was held on Monday, February 18th 2019. Missi Mancuso, Community Services Director, Lisa Mainardi, Events Coordinator, and Danielle Perrotta of Whole Learning created an inclusive event program to bring together families and help to educate the community.
Sensory-friendly events provide a safe, supportive environment for families who have children or young adults with special needs. People with autism or sensory sensitivities can enjoy a movie, show, or activity without worrying about following the constraints during a typical event. Moviegoers can feel comfortable vocalizing, getting out of their seats, or taking a break in the sensory-friendly break area.
